Shadow Shot Sunday...Beauty Again...


sometimes
we walk dark paths
unknowing
shaded by
inner doubt
and sorrow
what if
we strolled
into the light
of inner self
and saw
beauty

what if
down every lane
we walked
fearless of
shadowed corridors
awakened
we walked
in beauty again
awakened
we walk

in beauty again

Ellie said...

Perfect for Halloween. I wouldn't trick or treat there though. Looks safe during the day :)

bobbie said...

Lovely.
this is the perfect site and sight for the season.

The sunlight filtering through the shadows makes happy shadows. The B&W shadows, combined with the barren trees is more stark, and probably appropriate for this time before winter. Both shadows are beaytiful in different ways...

Carletta said...

I noticed the shadows and then began reading the poem and then all of a sudden the color shot came into view - like an awakening.
Words and pictures meld together beautifully!

I love the eeriness of these shadows - especially for Hallowe'en!
Lovely poem as well.

Sarah said...

This is a lovely poem and the way you used the photo to illustrate it too. Happy Halloween!

Hot Fudge said...

What a surprise. On finishing your haunting verse, there was that beautiful second image - like walking into sunlight. Here in Australia Halloween was never such a huge tradition, but it's suddenly taken off in the last few years, sending us ageing population down to the supermarket to stock up on candy ammunition to throw at the little goblins who come calling.

What beautiful shadows..I enjoy visiting old cemetaries..something peaceful about them.
Actually that sounds silly..of course they are peaceful..

Greyscale Territory said...

You are so right! We choose to see the light of beauty! It's all mood orientated and attitude driven! But often we are blind! We just dwell on the shadows!

Beautiful poem! And love the way it fades away with an echoing thought!

And your photos wrap beautifully around the poem ~ from greys to colours of the same walkway! But I must admit, I do find beauty in the grey tones too! They are subdued and quiet!

Sighhh...Just a little longer here and it's back to report writing! It's that time of year!

Happy weekend dearest sister! Warm hugs!

Your posts are always so moving. The emotions that come forth. The insight. The images that go with it.
How beautiful!

Sam said...

Stunning photo - I love tree lined paths - there's something very comforting about them.

Tilda said...

Beautiful images and words. I think shadows help us to notice and appreciate light even more.

I like the stark image of the bare trees against the sky
