SHADOW SHOT SUNDAY-' Halo's Virtue'

Oh, what I would give
to see your luminous face
each day,
as you enshroud my room
in grey shadows of doom.
Oh, bright ring of light...
this game you play,
this hide and seek,
speaks to this weary trav'ler of doom,
like a judgment of one entombed
to a fate unknown... Winter.
I hide in shadow,
I await,
as this bright halo
again descends to enshrine
my sacred Mother.
A luminescence that brings virtue
to a holy body of souls
awaiting your cure,
this sweet kiss,
this promise of time between birth and death...
life...


So now we again play SHADOW SHOT SUNDAY...head on over to Hey, Harriet and check us out, lots of cool shadows to be found!

Are these your words? I love the imagery as well as the light slicing through the blinds. That's very dramatic as well.

O such a spiritual photo! And your words seem to explore the deepest caverns of the soul.

Almost a paradoxical shot! A sense of soft brightness! Just love it!

Cool halo and nice shadows. And always with the pretty words!

Hey again Sharon...I saw you mentioned on Diva's post that you were saving for a wood burner. Have you looked into corn burners...a natural for Iowa. I don't sell them or anything...I just love ours and it really cuts down on our heating costs. Just something to look into if you haven't already.

Hey Harriet said...

I'm glad the sun is shining so brightly in your part of the world. You captured it so beautifully. This is such a gorgeous image. One that I could look at for ages! And the words are again perfect. Love your work!

Happy 2009 :)

M.Kate said...

WOW!! what a shadow and that Halo's really something..Love both the shadow and the poem, you have a gift of finding all the right words to describe everything perfectly. Not me, if I do this poem thing-y, I think no one will come visit anymore haha! Hope you are well and warm, are the snow still there or has it melted away?
Big hugs for the weekend :D

Luscious imagery; thanks for promoting Shadow Shot Sunday. I posted. Hope it works.

PS- I'm located just off mile marker 112 @ I-35. I will be heading to I.C. on Tuesday. Thoughts of venturing a little further south, oh..about 10 miles, to visit the shops.
