I see shadows

in the dark of the moon.

Today is no different

The messages don’t appear

for a vision opportune.


I see shadows

in the dark of the moon

When perceptions dim,

and we can’t commune.


I see shadows in

the dark of the moon.

meanings pending,

slyly presented with

the chorus out of tune.

I see shadows

in the dark of the moon.

When the light finally appears

it will be none too soon.

  1. Very beautiful poem. So glad you stopped by today. Have a wonderful Thursday!

  2. what are those shadows, why do we insist on knowing? Nice poem.

    • For me, it’s like I’m seeing danger in every corner when maybe none exists. I think when we get those answers it’s easier to go with the flow of the unknown.

  3. readng your coment brings this further into perspective….i know that feeling…and it does not have to be…nice one shot

  4. This one is dreamy, like that half-awake state that occurs between deep slumbers. Nice One Shot.

  5. When perceptions dim — that seems to be when those shadows come out to play. Great one shot!

  6. Beautiful… I liked it so much…
