Shadow




i search the wide room 
under table, white closets
i could not find you

opening window 
twigs sway hearing evening's call 
a lone shadow leaps 

full pale moon in arms 
dancing red shoes on brown feet   
twirling out of sight

goodbye, full circle
we have come, until I see 
not a trace of you

  6. Lyrical and deep. The full moon always brings up
    my emotions, yet I hate to see it go...and love
    the return.

  10. Devil Moon in dancing red shoes is not to be trusted.
    A revelation is in the offing for sure.
