It has captured me.
The bending, yielding plant I see.
But more so it’s shadow.
Fascinates. Holds captive my eyes and
keeps me in place.
Just like the shadows deep inside me.
Keeping me rooted from what I truly seek.
Shining a light. Bright as the sun. Still
a few persist. I let go of some.
Days continue. Some lighter than others.
All of them holding blessings and wonder.
When my eyes choose to see,
beyond the shadows. I am free.
Love, blessings, and gratitude, 💕 Carrie
Shadows fall upon the snow
Waiting to grow
Creating shadow patches
pulled through the dirt
to find one can fly
and the glitter on the turf
always caught the eye
sparkling till one looked real close
drawn in to see the face shimmering in the beige
bland fluff of ground
minutes ticked by
we sat pulled into ourselves
watching it all fade to black
then return to light
sparkle and shine
till the full of your eye started to glitter
drawn in with a laugh
falling over the top of the ghost
of shadow that still crossed your face
as if we could not stop the shade
it still fascinated me
the play of light and dark
the sparkles and glitters
distracting a mind lost in wonder
full of life and images of others
who have lived before
only to pass the universe on to me
or you however you want to see it as we are one
living for all to see the glitter
drawn in and around like the circle of cycles
we planted that spring
forever growing and molding
the shape we became
