“a bright shadow”

Written for:  The Twiglets #297 - a bright shadow

As the steely shadows
slid upwards, a bright
rainbow filled the sky.

On a night wall,
shadowy figures 
slipped through,
leaving in their wake
bright halo of an angel.

autumn tree
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.


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.
