SOFT SHADOWS

The willows whisper
clouds gaze above
On forgotten fields
that once grew love
Eye's sparkle gone
dust in its place
A fading flower
hope's tear-stained face
The day is ending
Hues' kiss goodnight 
Soft shadows cruel tease
That everything's all right

~Lyric Man

Note: This is an echo poem from one of my favorite poets on the Soup. I heard she has now gone and I had the beauty and the melancholy colliding inside.

It's easy to believe with willows whispering and clouds gazing and shadows softening that everything is all right.

:( this made me sad because we do have some close bonds with fellow poets and when one leaves this place we can still feel their whispers in the wind

An echo poem is a direct response to another writer's poem. It's almost like singing a duet!

"A fading flower...hope's tear-stained face" Those are my favorite lines, Chance. Sorrowfully emotional.
