Shadows Become Substance     August 19, 2009

shadows become substance

mists flow, eddy

winds carve, sculpt

sands erode, hone

shadows become substance

voice asks, relates

mind wakes, bright

soul oft dreams, wails

shadows become substance

hands weave, explore

feet dance, trek

eyes enchant, moan

shadows become substance

hope sings, affirms

peace dawns, white

love beguiles, grace

shadows

shadows appear

shadows cede to light

shadows become substance

just as breath

turns into life
