Shadow Shot Sunday

Stay My Friend

You are a late sun.
The afternoon wains through my window,
I catch your meaning on my wall.
Be quick, as I am fleeting
my message is fast passing 'way.
My winter's dressage, you will soon be wary,
as the warmth you so long for,
is a mere game of guessing...
you are getting warmer...you are getting colder...
but I am not fond of games.
This quiet creature
has not the affection for your riddles...
raw, cold and dull they become.
Do not seek to become overzealous,
I am not your foil.
I will seek the sea and salt-scented breezes
to calm my warm-blooded heart.
This is not my cage, but my longing...
I long for my true sun...
always.
SSS is here, how fast the days pass as winter approaches. Go to Hey,Harriet and check out the shadows, we have some really fun people joining in, won't you try.

Yes, I always dreams those unreachable dreams. And I don't mind coz I know, it's free to dream *LOL

Who knows one day, those who dream will reach their dreams.

I am always amazed and how quickly Mother nature changes the scenery - a sunset, or sunrise, or 4 o'clock sun through a window..beautiful reminder to look QUICKLY for it may be gone on a moment!

Hi Sharon, what a pretty photo. That picture could have been taken in that house 60 or 70 years ago(except they didn't have good color cameras). Your style is true to the house. I like that. I'll check out the shadow site.
