“shadows vanish”

Written for:  The Twiglets #232 - "shadows vanish"

When his shadow vanished
so did I.

After the plum-scarlett 
sky vanished, night
occluded the beach.
Not even shadows
could be seen.

shadows imprinted
confused frog on lily pad
sees two reflections

              Wendy was worried and pacing
         Peter's shadow had fallen while chasing
            Tinkerbell, so jealous
           of Wendy, such rudeness.
     Wendy sewed Peter's shadow back, Tinkerbell raging.

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.

    Love that second one – “plum-scarlett sky” is luscious

    I enjoyed your first three. The limerick though… I’m a Pan fan and I remember seeing Peter Pan on stage, when Sandy Duncan played Peter Pan Possibly in the mid late 1960’s. 😀
