About the Poem

This poem is a restful peaceful glimpse into the life of sunshine and shadows.

Sun and Shadow

Trickle across
Verdant fields
Painting changing shades of darkness
Like an artist
With careless hand
Sun waking from afternoon's repose
Peeking through the clouds
Silvering the edges
Making its presence known
Tho' the beautiful valley
Lie covered in dull ebony
Sunlight lay here and there
In dappled patches
Ever changing
Almost living
Rays of light caressing the meadow
With silken fingers
Tender like a lover
Playful like a child
Gently creeping
Across darkened land
Shadows resisting
Wanting to stay and play
A mad game of tag
Sunlight in pursuit
As shadows flit
Across fertile earth
