Dancing in the Garden

Dancing in the Garden

I see them there , cast against the garden wall
Shadows dancing in the blush of afternoon
The lively winds tumble branch and grasses all 
In their passing these quick images are strewn
The sun soon dropping into its red hued nest
Dance now with abandon for soon they will rest
Sun, wind and wall, partners in this pretty show
Little gifts of nature to set hearts aglow

    Hi Barbara, It was indeed "Light Poetry" much better than the "I don't know" I like the idea of "shadows dancing" there are so many way you could go with this. Of course "Shadows Dancing" could be the title of anothe rof your poems. Take care, Jancarl

    A nice example of a rispetto. When the night falls and it is dark outside, is Bruce Springsteen among those dancing in the garden?
