Long Shadows and the 91 Sadnesses

long shadows 2


Long shadows ruled the day….
Creeping on cricket toes…
Step by step….
And inch by inch….
Until their darkened breath
Can be felt by the very hairs
Of your neck….
And as they wrap like velvet tails
Around your softened skin…
Never forget that it was all with love…
Yes…of course…
All with love….




As the years ascend….
Fear digs its sinister hooks….
Within lonely tears….

(Haiku for my parents)
