Shadows

Some shadows give a preview of the dark,
Tree leaves dancing on a kitchen floor,
An omen for the day the tree is dead.

We need no more proof that all is our imagination,
We are here; the tree is not, yet do we see it move.
I’m here for now. My shadow has its own life to continue.

  1. Beautifully touching and reflective. I expect nothing else when I read your verses, so steeped in experience and a life time of deep reflection. Loved it

  2. Dear Ina, I think you are in the twilight zone, I have been in the twilight zone and know it’s a strange but safe place, so all is well. All you are required to do in the twilight zone is surrender to love…
    “And all shall be well and
    All manner of thing shall be well
    When the tongues of flames are in-folded
    Into the crowned knot of fire
    And the fire and the rose are one.”
    TS. Eliot
