The Light Fades

Light fades,
the sun’s optimism
giving way to darkness’ shadows
my eyes are drawn to hidden placesdarkspaces
warily seeking the source of this creeping sensation
what beasts inhabit crevices, what creatures lurk
and are these merely trees that loom over me

or the incarnation of trapped souls
taunting my passage?

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.

      1. I thought so too. I’m glad I kept it instead of deleting as a bad photo. I felt mysterious, brooding….loved it through the rain soaked glass. Although my mind goes to mystery, intrigue, foreboding etc, it can also be seen as shelter in the storm.
