The memory of you
Passes across my heart
As if a shadow moving

Will I ever recover
Discover how to get over
your absence
Prevents me from moving
Or staying I’m
Straying into moonbeams
Looking for a shadow
Indigo image
To take your place


Kerry has introduced us to the art of Felix Gonzalez-Torres for our inspiration in the Garden today

Missing Your Shadow Revised

It’s Quadrille time at d’Verse

I got so caught up in the shadows I forgot to watch the word count – duh.

Here’s my revision

~

I walked around the lake
the way we used to
and looked for you when I
heard the hawks
over head
As the sun cast long fingers
of orange across the water
I longed to see your shadow
fall across my path once more

Missing Your Shadow

d”Verse Poets Quadrille # 17
De at whimsygizmo is asking us to write about shadows today

Missing Your Shadow
I walked around the lake
the way we used to do
and bought pellets to
feed the ducks
the way we used to do
I looked for you when I
heard the hawks over head
circling in the warm updrafts
I smiled at dogs and children
running past our favorite bench
but the joy was gone
As the sun cast long fingers
of orange across the water
I longed to see your shadow
fall across my path once more
