The shadows speak

When this boat adrift at sea
The shadows speak.
When a broken heart finds no reason
The shadows speak.

In the streets, crossings and connections
The shadows speak.
In the body that dances, walks, runs and stands
The shadows speak.

On the moon, the stars and the sky
The shadows speak.
About physics, chemistry and biology
The shadows speak.

In constant renewal
The shadows speak
Under the creeping life and love bubbly
The shadows speak.

In the wisdom of the thing made
The shadows speak.
In the consciousness of the creator
The shadows speak.

Not in death,
which is the gateway to the integration of the entire
But in death,
on the body that is matter
that it makes the shadows his place in space.

    Alot to think of here since a shadow is the darkness created by being backlit ;)Light & Love

    Brilliantly done Max! Love how you've brought out the theme and the clever use of the refrain to build up to the conclusion -in the end death serves as a release to the shadow. Nice! Very nice!
