Shadows

Home night

Peek-a-boo
Shadows lurking
Children play
In darkened rooms

Lullabies
Hide their terrors
In the world
The black rose blooms

Hush now child
No use crying
Shadow friends
Have come to play

All who live
Will soon by dying
Nothing more
For us to say

Like most people, I have a number of sides to me. The most interesting one probably emerges through my writing, hence this blog. I love to read, and also to write, and so this is a way to share both.
