I write what I feel…



Post No. 803




Head back, I dozed, eyes closed,

Sun and shade played

On translucent eyelids

Barely visible

Felt, rather than seen

Thru the screen of lashes

Resting on my cheek.

Dust motes dance

Up and down a shaft of light

Then, as it fades,

They too vanish from sight.

Light and Shade

Light and Shade

The sunlight played
In the dappled shade
Of the maple tree.
Patches of light
Danced to the tune
Of the mischievous breeze.

The leaves floated down
To lie on the ground
And the tree was bare.
Bereft it remained
In the receding shade
Until the spring returned.
