eclipse (Poem 20160506)

the screen tries to hold my focus
but shadows
flicker past catch my eye

ghosts, shades, living fades,
the memory of a wind chime
on a still day

with the right suns
you can mix light and shadow into
crisp edges and soft blue blisters

but these shadows sport human shape
i watch them lengthen and merge
and wait for their whispers

    Ooooh, like a painting that I’d hang in my home. You’ve really been hitting the ball out of the park lately with your poetry!
