A Shadow Beautiful Poem by Sandra Fowler

A Shadow Beautiful

Rating: 3.4

How can I write a shadow beautiful?
It is elusive, haunting as old verse.
The wind transcribes the dusk upon pale leaves.
I touch your hand to prove the mood is real.

A cloud or two portends day's epitaph.
Friend, linger takes us where all lyrics go.
The picture is an echo of itself.
No sound is needed to configure song.

There are lovers that we meet and can't forget, lovers separated by time as well, you're poetry is the sadness of my heart, maybe we will be lovers yet in some place divorced from time. Uriah

A whisper, a prayer, a moment of tenderness - touch, sight and sound echo always in your verse. This poem brought tears to my eyes - blessed tears, that soothe the soul. Without shadow, light would be invisible. Truly, a wonderful blend of music, color, sound and soul.
