Poets United prompt this week is #35 shadow, now I have that song, "Me and My shadow" in my head. Then I think of those horror movies, where "Only the Shadowknows"or was that a radio show my parents use to talk about?! (it's a radio show, in case you don't click on link). Then Peter Pan's shadow comes off;Wendy saves it and stitches it back on. The symbolism of the shadow, fear, courage, growing up all reflected in these. Shadow has so many meanings.
I chose a different path, a path I think my daughter is considering.
Cupid's bow pursed,
passion's natural rose smiles,
planes appear, saving face
hollow apples,crop dusted
windows encircled, uplifted soul
smoky drama arrives in
matte made dreams,
skin and bone extract the canvas
hair color highlights hinges of youth,
rusting under painted brow,
alluded light by degrees
emotion drawn on,
play the part,
light reflects the God given jewels,
softness sets against animated sun,
light danced when young,
time worn clouds appear.
covers pieces of YOU.
