    In the shadows
    there is a presence that looms
    It swirls and curls
    then it zips and zooms

    Something gently taps a shoulder
    in the shadows, causing one to turn
    with a start... Causing curiosity to build,
    a mystery one yearns to learn

    In the shadows, one can be held at once
    taken and swept away
    by a dark mist that captures the soul
    wishing to hold off the light of day

    There are dreams in the shadows
    Sleeping images that wink and smile
    I've seen dreams that come alive thru a veil
    felt the caress of midnight lace for quite a while

    The shadows have provided a barrier
    some shade to buffer the penetrating sun
    The heat of which can be quite intense... I want
    to bask beneath those rays, til the day is done

    Even at the risk of getting singed
    To fully appreciate the shadow's caress
    and the sun's intensity
    I must confess
    It's an eclipse that destiny longs to profess

    You always have a way of making me feel like Im floating on a cloud lol. I love it as always I am in awed by the work of the poets here. The personalities are so different but the passion is the same.
