Shadow Spirits

 

Solemn silence whispers heartbeat rhythms unto pastel sunsets,

Overcast memories in shimmering shadows haunt past sunrises.

Graves of the departed have compressed, settling in time’s gravity,

Where skeletal remains decompose reality, within a coffin’s cavity.

 

Shadow spirit’s eerie presence quivers still among the night’s quill air,

Chills life as a treasure trove of pure pleasure in measures that bares

Budding blossoms of youth, to spring stepping stones to bear adolescence,

Sprouts of mature germination, that slowly wilts with reflective acquiescence.

 

Milky Way celestial clear clarity reflex of cerebral recollection retrospection

Pin point bearing, of focused time, rewinding back, into pastime inspections.

Soul searching in present tenses about lost opportunities in procrastination.

Birth has preordained God’s gifts into individual living paths of determination.

 

Upon shadow spirits of twilight introspection,

We pray in silence for another sunrise opportunity.
