Written for: The Twiglets #297 - a bright shadow
As the steely shadows
slid upwards, a bright
rainbow filled the sky.
On a night wall,
leaving in their wake
bright halo of an angel.
dressed in brilliant colors
chases shadows away
The shadow wished to have color
thinking it would become fuller.
Yellow leaf said, oh no,
that is no way to go.
You'll stand out like me, and dry up duller.
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.
Lovely verses. Shadows vanish with rainbow, angelic hue, and autumn brilliance.
Fun limerick. Autumn is in full swing here.
Here’s a shadow we won’t have to deal with much longer – After November 6th…
On March 15, 2022, just days after clocks were adjusted to “spring forward,” the U.S. Senate passed the Sunshine Protection Act of 2021, which would abolish clock changes in favor of permanent daylight saving time.
For a while I lived in Indiana (except for a few counties) and also Arizona never did change clocks. 🙂
Thanks, Jules! Oh how I hate clock changes.
