“I love you as certain dark things are to be loved,
in secret, between the shadow and the soul.” ― Pablo Neruda, 100 Love Sonnets
FOWC with Fandango Kudos
for becoming my emotional support puppy!
Sleeping under the blanket,
Pushing me off the bed.
Me and my shadow.
Careful or that toy
Will be mine!

I can only know you, he said, if I’m inside
And so he crawled in,
My legs spread like a sprawling giraffe.
I am in you.
I am in you.
Like clouds on the sun,
Shadows pretending rain.
When he found nothing
He crawled out,
Walked away without

“How should we be able to forget those ancient myths that are at the beginning of all peoples, the myths about dragons that at the last moment turn into princesses; perhaps all the dragons of our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us once beautiful and brave. Perhaps everything terrible is in its deepest being something helpless that wants help from us.
Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet

The world calls them its singers and poets and artists and story-tellers; but they are just people who have never forgotten the way to fairyland.”

Trying my hand again, so here goes…
The scent of roses hides
Shadows cold under the dark sky
Soft baby warm light.

Line whirling through sky
As sunlight reflects bright scales.
Fish drowning in air.

This week’s photo provided by Jade Wong.
Another foray into the attempt at haiku. Or, just a three-line poem if that doesn’t work!
Smuggled among glitter
grass, topsy-turvy puzzle.
A paper white bat.
