Shadow’s Edge

20111015-232723.jpg
The path was cold and sprinkled white
Enwrapped in snow from head to toe
Aglow beneath the lantern lights
But vanishing at shadow’s edge
Into the black eternal night

A pair of soles have left their print
Along beside a second stride
Together there the two souls went
For reasons snow could not describe
Its melting can but leave a hint

Some shadow thrown across their trail
By sleepless trees with restless leaves
Obscures their fate whereon it fell
A cloak upon this evidence
To hush the stories, lest they tell

Of coupled hearts that took their plight
Along this path to part at last
Aglow beneath the lantern lights
But vanishing at shadow’s edge
Into the black eternal night

  1. I love the rhythm of this, a drum beating out your words. And your words, juxtaposed against The primal heat floating in etherial goodness. So other-wordly and yet earthy. I’m hoping to be lulled back into a sweet sleep by your words.
