BLACK AND SHADOW

It has been said that a man who castΒ  no shadow is without a soul. I seriously do not know if there is any truth in that but all i know is that all living things have shadow.

You may have a contrary view- that’s okay. You can share it with us on the prompt. Let us go straight to the prompt:

-See picture

-Compose a poem inspired by picture with words in title

Shadows bind to our light
embracing colorblind eyes
alive we bridge both
between atoms and galaxies.

Where does light stop
or darkness seep inside
skin-deep or soul-deep
one holds us, one binds us.

We’re painted here
between water and air
as ignorance drowns reason
shadowing our only light.

A night of black radiance
moments giveth
streetlights mystified
shadowing regrets
gleaming musically in
secret chances
loved by the moon
the elegance of a kiss
upon lightness of breath
to nuzzle my neck
fooled twice
romanced blind.

They use coded language to speak of some
they call em thugs, & suspects.
claiming they always have a gun.
Chasing their own trigger finger shadows
on the wall.
Eyes taped open to the screen, can’t leave
Indoctrinated by bad movies one and all.
Left their soul behind when filled with hatred of black
Claims of white holy angels and black demons fill their head
doesn’t matter how educated or rich you are
to a fear filled man, to be black is to be dread. -Amberdawn (CRG)
