Shadows at Twilight

a far away look blends

yesterday and tomorrow


in the haze of day’s ending

we see without seeing

we know without knowing

and there in the shadows

we are without being


This poem was inspired by a painting on Doodlewash.

Doodlewash is a go to site for me.  Both the paintings and the writing
set my muse to dancing.  In fact, in this instance it was the title of the
painting that most inspired.  “Shadows in Mulled Wine”  Now there is a line
that would launch a thousand poems.  Since my conscience would not
allow me to borrow the title verbatim,  I let it lead me and it led me to
the title of this poem  “Shadows at Twilight”, which in turn led my pen
to spill the words of this poem.
