Look — A Poem

Dogwood Shadow 2.jpg

“Shadow” — C.Birde, 3/19

 

Look

look away

cringe

fade…

To either side,

a tug,

a pull of

equal force.

Duality of need

desire

balanced

in opposition

to the self.

Uncertainty –

a slow poison

consumed

in sips;

a crumb

nibbled,

bitter

on the tongue.

Shadows,

all –

insubstantial;

substance-

less.

Trust —

within

lies the way.

Shimmer.

Blaze.

 

— C.Birde, 3/19
