Poetic Fragments



shadows creep in often

childhood dreams

into adulthood

people and rivers

always in shades of gray

never having changed

but all long gone

rooted down and deep

  1. perhaps the past holds many shades and colors never seen when it was the present…

    • Very true……clarity is probably the key. Despite shades of gray, always quite clear.
      Funny how some things never seem to leave, or perhaps part of me will not relinquish…layers worth of shrinkwrap.

      • now picturing swirls of abstract painting done in colors of plastic-wrap 🙂 they say to let go of the past, but i say happiness has richer tones if you incorporate it……..with the now. suppose has to do with responsibility. we study the lines (between the greys). “you can’t please everyone, so you’ve got to please yourself.”
