Remains of the Day

I saw the shadow
Moving before me
Inching slowly
Down the coast

An illusion of oneness
Reflecting the loneliness
A solitary figure
Etched in the sand

Will there come a time
When the shadow will reveal
Hands clasped together
A twin at its side

Perhaps not along
An oceans sandy shore
Dancing happily instead
Upon a forests floor

When daylight fades
Into twilights magic hour
And that shadow of oneness
Will be the mark of completeness

  1. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this, I think that it is a very moving and mobile creation. Moving in that it is poignant, mobile in that it has a flow to it, like water, it doesn’t stop moving all throughout.
