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 is a saying 'Chasing the crooked shadow.' shadows do not reflect real things as they are but distortions of real things. So you can't say shadow is beautiful. When you say no sound is needed to configure song, does it become a shadow of the song or an abstract idea? Of course, for writing a song no sound is required, what I mean. Your poetical way of telling such things gives several interpretations in one's mind. Well done!

Hell, Sandra. On revisiting. A piece that is... utterly yours, and couldn't be bettered. Why would you wish to write like anybody else? No: the other way round. t xxx
