About Shadows - Poem by Katharine Byrd

Winter petals fall upon a crystal lake
Inhale deep breaths of bitter cold
White soft shadows fall unto the ground
Recalling a past of innocence
Lazy smile
Drifting image
Sifting slowly into a distance that doesn’t exist
Footfalls lost in the carefulness
A dark falls.
Fate forthcoming and foreboding in It's undulating way.
Casting shadows
From unseen realms
Trust turns to Paranoia.
Glancing away from her sister, Grace.
White and pale blue twist in agony
All that is black crawls seethingly in.
Age betrays Thought.
And leaves her to the souls of the hungry.
©K. Byrd 2000
