The illusion

The illusion

A Poem by Light



The afterglow 
takes me away
to You
I fall 
a night's world 
deep
yet, sparkling with dreams
~*
Tall poplars
caressing my feet
my vast shadow 
across the valley
splitting into 
fading silver rays 
larger than You 
beyond life 
I belong to 
no place or time 
~*
The symbol of sadness
I become
and my love is weeping 
in an endless world
where words flow
like burning tears 
melting my shadow 
into poetic sounds 
the sizzles of Your pencil
writing me again 
composing me again 
creating me again
ending me 
again...

and again...

The dawn 
takes me away
from You 
an illusion
belongs to
no place or time
nor
You.

This exquisite poem is sweet as morning mist, vaporous amd moist with dew. The form and flow like a woman’s curves, sensuous and ripe. Beautiful metaphor. Dramatic, ardent, stunning imagery- “I fall a night’s world deep”. So sad and poignant at the end. Brilliant work my friend.

Very sad of falling words. Few words like falling rain make impact on reader. Like old poetry when poets use just pen and paper.

The poem speaks to me of beauty in solitude, the joy of finding one self, a bliss greater than love. Beautiful poetry....

It is wonderful Light the way your words float on the page and as I read them they rise and enter my breath down into my heart first with beauty then with a deep sense of sadness that grips my dancing heart and makes it be still as a church mouse during a low solemn sermon and it left me feeling sad a beautiful sort of sad, I think you can write anything with the kind of deep feelings like no one else and the pictures say a lot too -- thank you! :(

HUGGS!
