the night’s shadow

who goes there, silent shadow seeking a way into the light?  not a single word was spoken back in answer but surely it was the coming of another night…  look up into the crimson stars above not quite ready to begin, I found my own thoughts up above without knowing why but hopefully he’ll allow them in… (soft in sigh, a sound returns: I’ll soon be in your brightest silver dreams).  

until, lurking in his alley, I watch him juxtapose against a wall of cindered bricks and mortar crumbling on the street:  as he waits alone for clair de lune… predisposed in love for her he stays long hours until the stars fill up the sky.  I look up again and there he is!  a shimmering shadow glows while dancing with the moon.  time for me to say goodnight.

About KatherinePopeWolcott

currently compiling thoughts/writings -- notebooks full, pulled apart and put back together and then something new, and here it all comes. two books being finished in the interim. Sometimes really frustrating. I remain with little interest in attempting to learn the "how to" parts of blogging because I'm technically inept, so multiple limitations are always present; just try not to think about... but other creations coming soon -- I think I am able to scan/pdf; what I am currently working on (paintings and photos and painted photos) once finished; or get someone else to do it for me.
