Shadow By Reality

Here is the semblance flapping in wind
Light when parades by shadow of wing
grace looks brighter by glaze of green
eyes seems to meander into love intoned

desire settles slowly over quest cajoled
heart riffles faster by grin in verdure
wave nestles on crest and trough in cadence
rungs of ocean bestirs stemming tide

reasons of truth unravel mysteries
time precision dissipates the illusion.....
darkness slowly bespeckles to dew
sun knocks door of mist genuflecting

    darkness slowly bespeckles to dew
    sun knocks door of mist genuflecting. Great coincidence or maybe a moment of serendipity, who could know, right before reading this poem posted one about the rising sun.

    Darkness holds illusion and mind easily does not understand mystery. Reasons of truth are unraveled. But by glaze of green light appears and grace looks brighter. Very interesting this poem is really and nice one.10

    truth always prevails
    as darkness fails
    sun flashes out gloom
    there is always space or room
