September 12, 1991, I met a fog in the city of Knoxville, Tennessee. Everything became very vague. Not only that the Great Smoky Mountain, which was clearly visible on the sunny day, was completely blocked by the fog, the neighbors' brick houses and flowers are also very hazy. But, the cricket's sound could be heard clearly.  I wrote the "Autumn fog" in twenty eight Chinese characters. Twenty-three years later, when I was seventy-seven years old, I found the poem in the old manuscript and scanned it into an electronic version. I used two days to compose a song for the poem. February 2016, I visited New Orleans and added another 28 Chinese characters to form a longer poem as following. 秋霧 高魁雄作: 遠看白紗掩青山, 近聽秋蟲鳴翠壇; 石屋朦朧隱芳草, 旋花迷離上窗欖。茫茫人生含艱險, 旦夕禍福莫愁天。良機只待有心人, 霾日照彩雲邊。And I composed a longer song, published in my music sheet book. This is a short version of English translation of the original short poem.
