The evening shadows stretch long on the ground,


As I walk in the dusk slowly homebound,


Musing how time passed me by.


The sky turns scarlet, then velvety black;


One must go forward and never turn back…


Never… till it’s time to die…


 


Echoes of the past resonates inside,


Even in shadows past pain cannot hide;


Dried up tears cannot be shed.


I walk in shadows… I walk with shadows…


Whilst listening to faint, disturbing echoes


And the whispers of the dead.

Your shadows of the past are nightmarish visions that will unfortunately be with you till the end of your days...I feel for your pain...(how is your family?) Ed, Rene & Rufuz

I remember when those shadows were first printed as daily news in the daily newspapers. Their horror is with me still. The images do not whisper to me, they shout. Your poem shouts to me. s/henry
Reviewed by Karla Dorman, The StormSpinner 4/29/2006
Peter,

A chilling walk with shadows. The faint, disturbing echoes you hear are the voices of 6,000,000 plus Jewish people, reminding us to never let another holocaust take place. Powerful write, my friend.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
