Invisible Shadows

Written for:  Poetic Bloomings2 – Prompt #223 – “And I Quote” – Installment #4
“Write either a sunshine poem or a shadow poem. Or light. Or dark. Either definition of each is acceptable, as in gradations of luminescence or lighthearted or darkly mooded words. Even something black or white can satisfy this prompt.”

Shadows can barely
be seen
in this heavily-
curtained dark
-ness of death.
Certain passings
of life can snap
your mind, cut out
your heart, flood
your eyes, and wrap
a shawl of fog
around your shoulders.
What is it like
when there is
no more shadow?

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
