dance with the angels








playful the creatures that dance through the night
carried by angels whose calls them invite
through starry gates at the heart of the moon
freely renouncing the earthly paths strewn
with obstacles blinding the visions that flow
richly through silver rays while they echo
in the free spirits that relish the truth
lost… in those moments past youth

  5. That first line has a riveting rhythm, Shadow. It leads us into the poem like a galloping horse.

  10. When I read your words--in my usual tranced state--I'm transported to places I've never been, but hope to one day experience. Exciting!

  11. You've created a conundrum, a playful transformation that both renounces earthly paths and relishes what is lost. Uh!

  19. Shadow, I have been meaning to mention the change I have noted in your mood since I started reading your work. Love it! Missing a lot of the darkness of the first stuff I read, which I appreciated, but I am amazed at the transformation in your style. Hope it means life is as beautiful for you as you're writing.

  29. "...in those moments past youth."

    I believe this last little line says so much than the sum of it's parts.
