Soft shadows beckon
Quiet respite for weary
Come sit dream awhile

I could use a "dreaming place" like that about now...


A SEEKER OF SHADOWS

A seeker of shadows, they say,
Will keep her eyes peeled night and day
For resident shades
That haunt the dark glades
And never come outside to play.

The trees are nestled amongst the water and rocks, the sun filters through the flora. Relaxing and quiet, I imagine the brook/creek making the tiniest moving water sounds. This seems to be a place that we sit and collect our thoughts. A lovely place of solitude with nature, that bench is inviting to stay awhile...
