4.a haze before the eyes that dims the vision
5.a suspension of a liquid in a gas.

When the night has been cold, and sun is trying its hardest to break through the thin layers of ice covering the world, I often see mist. It glides over the lakes and fields and slowly in between the threes by the road, glimmering in the fragile morning light. By the time I get to school, no mist is visible and if present at all only lingers as a cold touch in the air. Sometimes I wonder if the mist was really there at all, or if my eyes were just still clouded by sleep, and it took sight this long to break through.

Mornings like these go well with songs like Don McLean's "Starry, starry night", Regina Spektor's "The Flowers" and Ingrid Michaelson's "Keep breathing".

I really like mornings like these.
