“Poetry is an echo, asking a shadow to dance” Carl Sandburg

Leaves of October

The leaves of colour
Soon but shadows
Slowly fading away
In the October rain

Autumn leaves
Falling down
From the trees
On to the ground

The winds are soon
But a silent whisper
As the leaves bloom
Out of existence

“When walking through the ‘valley of shadows,’ remember, a shadow is cast by a Light” Austin O’Malley

Shadow Play in October Part Two

The October sun’s shadows
Casting tall and narrow
The darkened figures
Painting abstract pictures
Onto every surface

Carefully you listen
But the only sound
Is the soft whistle
Of the Autumn leaves
Landing on the ground

“Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see a shadow” Helen Keller

Shadow Play in October Part One

The sun in zenith
Standing beneath it
My shadow casting tall
Despite feeling small

The shadows at play
On this October day
Wish I could stay
A while longer
