So what has shadow whispered at
the dawning unto you - has she hinted
at the dusk, and has she murmured of the dew?
~ ~ ~
She meets me before sunrise as
the skies so slowly light - and I wonder
just what mystery she’ll show me ‘fore the night?
~ ~ ~
She creeps across the meadows while
the sun peeks over hills - she’s the lifeline
of the springtime - she’s the shade of daffodils..
~ ~ ~
So has the shadow kissed you with
her magic and her sighs?  Well, in case that
feeling’s missed you - it’s the glow of paradise!

Enchanting song of shadow here---wish I'd thought of it--quite jealous now...

I am a shadow person too--absolutely loved this...it is, well, Serene...

WOW... my darling, why do you spring these on me... and now your tucked in bed. There's way to many thoughts you've left dangling in my head. I think if you do this again I'm going to wake you up instead... of sitting here wandering through my dreamy head.

Sleep tight my dearest sweet.

 If I could paint a portrait, of this life in which I've led, and somehow sketch a story, of the visions in my head, I'd start out with a canvas, stretched tightly in a frame, and in the bottom corner, I'd leave room to sign my name.  (Michelle A. Bartley)

Rosemary~
An enchanted way to start my morning.
You are blessed with the kiss of the faeries of the dawn.

Such beauty to wake up to. The imagery is so
beautiful. I love shadows too! ACT.

Rosemary --- You wrote this so well that I could see the shadows as I read your poem.  It's beautiful.

I'm amazed at all your comments this morning!  I had gotten up to write this in the night, and just decided to share it.  I never dreamed it would speak to anyone at all.  What a treat!  I really appreciate it!  Thank you so much!
