Night Shadows are poems about Love. Love that potent, capricious, overwhelming, overpowering emotional rollercoaster ride that overtakes and blinds our hearts, minds, senses, and wills. To believe that love is stronger than death is not a matter of opinion but a general fact of life for whoever has been in awe, caught, and entranced within love’s whirlwind passion and power will be transformed into something beyond him or herself. So in celebrating love we are celebrating life! And it’s with this thought I would like to leave you as you read the following poems.
26. Transverse twinkling stars travel tonight
Transverse twinkling stars travel tonight
In distant formation across my hand
In circling orbiting schemes of light.
They glide through Orion’s conglomerate,
Oh, at the sight of my loved one
The sight of your eyes, my beloved
Their beams of love betray our utmost covenant.
The moon glows dressed in a white gown
And blue tresses.
You fill the barrenness of my soul
Oh, how I loved you then,
How I love you now!
