The Art of Tea and Poetry

The Art of Tea and Poetry

Shadows


They follow me through thick and thin
through dank tunnels of my mind.
Those murky forests, dusty dunes
and the pain, that's left behind.

A mosaic they form on the floor --
a ghostly grey in the rain.
When I'm alone, they start their art --
a ritual dance in my brain.

The past -- a chequered field --
Of shame and guilty ground.
Though in darkness seldom I see
the Shadows following me around.

But now, Light hath made me aware
of the whispers and the tricks.
I seek some Light in my heavy heart
for the blackness, which it may fix.
