Shadows

Shadows

.

Shadows come and go away

In many different shades of grey.

Densely darkest secrets

Hidden in their copious folds,

Hidden from the world,

Never to be told.

What is life with no shadow,

Where every action leaves its mark,

Positive or negative,

Each one conjures up the other?

Naught but a bland and tasteless mess ~

Unappetising to say the least!

Unless…  our aim would be

To break the chain, sever the fetter,

To give others joy, to pass on happiness

Where e’er we may and find our own recompense

When that shadow falls on us.

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people!

    Sounds a fine project to me.
