A Traveler...SHADOW SHOT SUNDAY

We cross seas
and bridge rivers
searching for this hope
this craving...a glimpse...
of freedom
of passion
of owning perhaps...
What is this yearning
that pulls a heart
from homeland
to heartland.
A discovering
of fertile field, perhaps sanctuary,
perhaps only a longing.
Is it this freedom that calls...
this subdued uttering,
a whisper of breath,
a rustling in a travelers feet...
a Gypsy course of unending proposal,
am I free...I am free...
this is your course
the winds speak...
I will find you
matters not where you are
or how far...oh ye traveler,
I will find you.



On my weekly journey to Sister's Garden, this shadow figure follows me cross river and field, everywhere I am accompanied by my sister shadow...drive along to shadowland at Hey, Harriet ,
you will see many other travelers there.It is Sunday in Australia so please sign up and join our fun.

I love your travelling shadow (yes, we crazy Aussies spell travelling with a double 'l'). The trees reflected in the water are beautiful! As is the poem :)

Word verification is 'sisto' hehe.

...I'm far too easily amused...

Love "traveller" as the title of this shadow! (I come from "ll" country too!) The shape of t5he truck almost leaving just a whisper shadow on the water constantly reflected with trees on sunny days says so much!

O my dear Sharon, for some reason I have had you in my mind a lot recently ~ inspite of the crazy time I spend working at school then more packing. Perhaps it is the growing Christmas spirit wishing to spend happy times with friends.

BIG HUGS!

What a beautiful shot - I do hope you weren't driving when you took it! I love the feeling of impending winter you shot illustrates - quite the opposite to the wild sub-tropical storms we are experiencing here in Queensland.

Wonderful 'traveller' shot, and I love the poem! Hope you're having a very nice Sunday :D

Elizabeth said...

The composition has echoes within itself - car/ water.
Love the idea of travelling along with our shadow.
Great picture.

Kelly said...

Wow, this is a great Shadow Shot photo! I'm impressed with your creativity! How neat that you were able to catch the shot as you were traveling down the road. You're right the Shadow Shots can be addictive, I've noticed I'm looking at everything with a little different "eye" now! Your poetry is lovely and was really beautiful with the post!

Olga said...
