Fog of Wartburg

1 retinex.jpeg


I don't know how I got here,
but here I clearly am.

I wonder if a mushroom
has made me mad again.

I look around bewildered—
the air is filled with haze.

My head can't find direction;
my mind can't shake the gray.

The signs all point to nowhere;
I can't tell what they say.

My brain is on the warpath,
and I'm the one to blame.

What be this foggy woodland?
How stand these trees so silent?

Who goes there in the vapor—
Wherefrom these fears of violence?

I want to pick my way out;
I want to stick the line.

But nothing looks familiar—
I'm lost in fading light.


15 retinex.jpeg


11 retinex.jpeg


Of all who cannot save me,
I'm sure I'm number one.

If there be savior searching,
Satan's surely long since stung.

I don’t know if it was a mushroom but what an amazing post a magical whimsical wonderland

Loved these photos

Thanks for joining Wednesday Walk :), I truly enjoy exploring the world virtually each Wednesday seeing walks from all around the globe and feeling I am there and experiencing it all myself, such as I did in your post just now :)

Stop picking wild mushrooms you can't be sure aren't going to send you on a trip with your pizza.

I gather you got out alive.

I love this. The photos, while somewhat eerie, are gorgeous. The mood evoked could have gone a very different way, had the verse taken a different path.

Mostly. Got a nasty welt from where Satan stung me but I've been soaking it in holy water so I'm sure I'll be fine.

For enjoying this content I hereby sentence you to !PIZZA

Oh what lovely sleepy haze. It's a shame that mushroom has made you feel uneasy about it. Fog seems like such a big cozy protective - savior-like - blanket to me. Besides, you have @otherbrandt with you, right? I'm sure he will be sitting up all night beside the tent, using fog as shroud, with a hunting knife in hand. You know, just keeping an eye on that fog. Lovely story and pictures.

I guess fog can be like a safety blanket but don't forget your snorkel:

otherbrandt is rather unreliable, he is just as likely to stay up all night by my tent waving a knife and yelling at the fog as he is to disappear into the next county looking for a bar that's still open.

Ha, I will show my children this. It is a good plan, and we have snorkels. Well I hope otherbrandt at least brought you back something, other than a hangover.

He hasn't returned yet so it's really anyone's guess. Fingers crossed.

Feels disoriented, lets go, allows fog to wrap around and transport me through a portal to another time and place
