Long Shadows….

————-

Everyone’s life is full

of long shadows…

drifting lazily at times,

and snatching greedily

at other moments…

pouring like motor oil

over the erratic pulsing

of your soul…

finding a home within…

mingling with the light…

staining it…

tainting it…

but not all…

of course not all…

And then retreating into a quiet corner…

throbbing with anticipation…

for the next time…

that your soul is sad…

and the clouds..

cover up..

the sun..

  1. Your poem is great and comprehensive in it so much truth, David. The image is lovely and also very suitable with your lyrics! Thank you so much for having shared with us
    Hope you have a wonderful day, David! Stefania fondly! 🙂

  2. That, my friend, is why we need to seek the light. Only when we allow other things between us and the light are there shadows. It happens, so we need traveling companions to remind us to keep going. Well done, keep going. 🙂 ~D
