Treasure Island

Wendy Webb

Shadows fading in the light

Shadow creeps and seeps into the corners,
darkness falls and mauls what lies in its path.
It is dark, too dark, outside the doorway,
in the night, no light, for one who stands alone.
Yet I fear, too near, shadows creeping in,
through the glass, alas, what forms may appear.
For the light is bright, who shelters within,
within light, the night, is fading shadow.
Much brighter, grows lighter, as a new day dawns,
you are LIGHT, so bright, the sunrise in me.

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
