Shadow Shot Sunday...A Gypsy Soul


I have weathered these hollow storms
old remnants tagged and forlorn
suff'ring the remainder of days
adrift in limbo
this bit of Earth
moves season to season
carried 'long side sweet streams of light
afloat in decades of leftovers
returned from wastelands
old bones form anew
that which was spent by time's unforgiven folly
a traveler
I waste not these glorious fleeting moments
reflecting harvests of decades
I shall not drift alone ol' man in the moon
I am the rain
and the dust
and the Gypsy winds...
and you harbor my soul





Shadow Shot Sunday is quickly upon us again, like the spring before us, I worry that she will come and be gone too soon, you can never have enough of a good thing...right Tracy! Join the rest of the shadow shooters, be a part of the fun...

Hey you - hope your week-end is wonderful- love the photo and of course, the poetry. So when's the book being published? And will you autograph it for me??

Have an "almost Spring" week-end.

Lovely atmosphere in this photo! Almost like a glimpse of some other world "frozen" (pardon the pun) in time.

And your poem is rich with a deep and beautiful longing!

After getting first fire at the end of my street a week ago to an earthquake last Friday, I am hoping the gentle rain falling right now brings back some measure of normality.

I smiled when I saw the bear hugs you left on my post. You see, I call my dear hubby "Big Bear".

SUPER BIG HUGS BACK AT YOU!

Lovely, as always.

Sometime, when you get a minute free, please email me and let me know how you get the music to play when your site comes up. I haven't been able to master that trick.

It looks like sunset time. That ornate chair sitting by the hay bales is intriguing. Happy SSS!

Hey Harriet said...

Beautiful shadows and a very unusual chair...it seems to be missing a vital piece. Just makes the image more interesting. Fantastic poetry! I did miss your wonderful words last week. Have a happy week ahead :)

Took a look at your other posts, and that old book is quite a find!

Great shadow...loving your site...
thanks for the comment here...Zoe is a Morkie and we need a good groomer, too bad you're so far away...the last time she was groomed, she came home looking like a Schnauzer with a skirt...don't think we'll do that again...

Lovely photo and words.

At the moment I'm enjoying my digital camera so much that it doesn't matter which season it is. I'm finding beauty everywhere and loving it!

Like you finding an old chair next to a hay bale - wonderful! Before the camera I'd have passed right by. Now it's a photo op. ;-)

Your shadow shot makes it look like Spring on your side already.

Great shadow shot! Pity that chair doesn't have a seat for otherwise I would love to sit there and read a good book or two!
