Shadows

I fear as you read me,
One moment an iridescent, swirling,
swaying shadow...
Dancing lightly upon a symphony.
The next, bitter herbs upon the 
tongue of Man,
Haunted by death...
Yearning for 
Life.

All in the turn of an hour,
Trickling softly 
Between a tear and
hope - bursting my soul
Till it cannot contain
Within the prison of
Me.

I see a rainbow over
A tomb.  See God in both.
Reject all
Absorb all
With question.
And hope you would
understand...
What I cannot.

    A yearning to understand that which does not make sence to you, why must some fight a illness, or some die, or why anything in life, dancing shadows unlock the inner mind. This is a deep poem, good work. Judy Riley
