    Always been a fan of your work Mr Pickard, especially when old English is used. Also a sucker for a good rhyme scheme. Fortunately for me I found them both here. Thanks for sharing :)

    I don't think I've ever read a poem dedicated to the mist. Sure, many poems mention it but, to write a whole poem about it and, so beautifully done has left me with out words. The rhyming and flow was as mesmerizing as the topic...stunning piece, congrats on your well deserving win.

    Wanted to say congrats and leave a proper comment! This poem feels magical, and truly illustrates that wonder found in nature, that often we overlook or can't even properly realize or have words for. I keep coming back to the title, and how regally you reference the mist as "Her Grace" and refer to the sun as "The Orb". "Orb" is not a word I come across often, but when I do, I immediately think of something celestial. A presence that is more than light, offering wisdom perhaps, and a warmth that is not just physical. Your use of language, rhythm and rhyme all come together beautifully to capture these moments. There is also an elegance I found in reading this, that every part of nature has dignity and a role, and they all work together to complete the day, to harmonize. Congrats again!
