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
