Captivating Penumbra~

Pic from google**


The blue night spreads
merging the trees, minarets, arches
     in a fuzzy blur
         …. spills soot, everywhere.
 I, as a watcher
Beaten black-and-blue
   pause for a moment….
lean towards the snailing shadows 
  Following me            
                 - slowly, softly like a moth
                         "Everyone carries a shadow.." (Karl Jung)
The beauty of the words captivates me; 
awakened! My heart gathers up
Ah, shadows are gyrations of the mind, it's true!

 The sapphire earth
-wrapped in its own fears 
leads me out of anarchy!

  4. To be free of anarchy, I suppose we do imprison ourselves at times, to have firm ground under our feet. I love the shadows in this poem, both snail speed and gyrating, home of fears--need we own them as our way of staying sane? How much do we need our cages? I wonder too about the black and blueness, suspecting those aren't just the colors of night, but what we do to ourselves. Your poem is full of beautiful imagery, very sensual and thought provoking.

  9. We all carry shadows... it's how we see the beauty in it and then use it to grow in life is what eventually matters. Beautiful... :)

  14. Love the observation of shadows we carry with us, and wise conclusion: 'The sapphire earth
    -wrapped in its own fears
    leads me out of anarchy!' ~ indeed, people - thoughtful species....

  16. Fantastic poem. It's mystique found in the shadows. Yes we all have them Jung was right. And fear is what keeps us captive.
