Shadow Shot Sunday...Crow Talk


I am the child
behind
the screen door
sheltered
and fearful
of the shadow
of the next day's
light

you can't make
me come out
I'll be fine
in good time
the crow told me so
in a dream

he flew low
o'er my pig-tailed mane
and whispered
I've set you
free
then flew
into the sun

follow me
down
this winding brick road
put your
heart in hand
and you shall become
the woman
in front of
the ol' screen door

out of the shadow
and into peace
with the one
in the dream
and the maker
of the road
on the path
to the sun
sharing
faith

and crow talk

A porch engulfed in shadow is for my fellow shadow shooters to ponder...check out Harriets' down in Australia...she has a fun game to play...OK...



This was an actual dream I had 17 years ago...and it set me free...
I followed my heart down the road
and again, it did set me free...
how lucky was I
to have met
my guide
the crow
in a dream

thanks Richard...

I love it! The texture is fantastic! And so creative!

The winter intrudes onto the porch, the snow covering what rightly is a place for summer place mats, glasses of ice tea and nice conversation. The yard looks wonderful in either season, the winter stark. The summer beautiful...

sassytrash said...

You blow me away!!!!! You are so amazing....the way you use words (and perfect shadow shot photo) to paint the picture of your dream and life experience!!! (there are other of us little girls formerly hiding behind screen doors who are thankful for our crow-guides!!)

sooooooo when are you going to publish your work?

Great texture and shadow!

That's cute to dream of. TY a mill for sharing.

The white & grayish screen captured in your SS is perfect.

Hmmm... whom are we waiting for?

Enjoy as always.

This is a very creative shot.

Birgitta said...

Wonderful shadow photo and wonderful are the words also! Super!

Carin said...

Love your picture taken behind the screen door! Every week it amazes me how you come up with great shadows and a lovely poem to go with it! Thanks for sharing your dream!

Hot Fudge said...

What an incredible dream, and how beautifully your words recall it. And of course your shot fits in perfectly. Wonderful.

Sam said...

Wonderful shot! ...and the poem is just right - you are very creative!

Greyscale Territory said...

Wonderful mystique in both your words and the photo's tilted perspective of the screen and shadow! Fascinating! Just love it!

We have a rather strange phenomenon here! I am taking the turning colours of Autumn leaves while sweltering in summer days! Quite an odd feeling! It is as if the seasons are confused and their stream of consciousness is lost! But I love the mystery of it all!

Super busy at school! With all my good intentions of working lunch hours at school to avoid bringing work home, it's just not happening! Half my last weekend was doing school preparation and this weekend has not been much better! But still! Maybe I'm my worst enemy and see creative ways of extending lessons! Don't think I'll ever change!

Today, my dear David and I will be taking a little time out! He wants to fish and I'm not keen! So while he fishes I'll be doing some wandering taking photos! My favourite past time! I feel like a free spirit because he is free too! Love it all!

Happiness always to you dearest sister! (Adore it when you call me sister! It feels so right!)

BIGGEST WARM HUGS!

Love your point of view and your lovely poem.

Melanie Gray Augustin said...

I love this shot! Very stark and it really makes you look at all the details in the background.

Beverley Baird said...

What an interesting shadow! Great poem as usual!

Patti said...

That's an amazing dream you had. And this poem really hit home with me.
I've hidden behind a few screen doors myself.

The porch in the photo looks like a safe refuge from the outside world.

The Summer Kitchen Girls said...

This is really a great shot Sharon - we love it - it captures us and brings us into your dream for sure! Have a lovely week!

Paula Scott said...

Wow. Again. My gosh, how profound the image is alone (it is to me anyway); then to have it paired with such a stellar poem/dream! All of your images paired with poems would make a great publication. If I were a publisher, I would snatch you up.

BLOGitse said...

You know what I'm going to write, yes the same :)
"Beautiful as always!"
I'm happy for you. You followed your dream -
most us follow fame and glory...
Happy SS Sunday!

jabblog said...

That's a fairly dense screen - well done for breaking free, coming out from behind - love it!

Cassie said...

Is there a tree down in that porch?! Quite an intriguing photo.

Sounds like your BrĂ¢n was a wise old crow and not a harbinger of death or war. Good for you.

Gallery Juana said...

I truly believe dreams we have (even nightmares) sometimes are trying to communicate something to us. Powerful post.

Stine in Ontario said...

Wonderful shot on an angle! Loved your words too!

Serendipity said...

That's a very funky shot :) Apologies for commenting so late - this week has been hectic!
