Shadows into Light

farm visit 128-005
Light and Cane series – June Perkins

There are days when you can play
with shadows to see the light
you can find these on journeys
past cane and fallen down trees.

Life has corners you can’t see
twists and turns
still photography.

Sometimes we don’t see connections
We go and miss
the shimmering.
Sometimes we don’t see the beauty
We’ve forgotten how to feel.

You can chase the sunlight
across the window panes.
You can turn it into
anything you want.

Climb and clamber
shine and Sway
in the forests
light the way.

Capture a glimpse of connection
dream of nature’s rhapsody
make this a day to remember.
Chase the shadows into light.

Sometimes we don’t see connections.
We go and miss the shimmerings

Sometimes we don’t see the beauty,
We’ve forgotten how to feel.
Make this a day to remember
Chase the shadows into light

(c) June Perkins, song lyric.

Over at my ripple poetry blog I am sharing lots of poems on light, from my own work and other’s writings, in celebration of the International Year of Light. Here is one that I wrote after cyclone yasi.
