Silhouettes – A Poem

Image by Hamsterfreund from Pixabay

Golden silhouettes tip the skies at sunset,

Making coins from marooned leafy corsets;

Leaves clinging to branches, with their might

Like spray-starched limbs on a favorite shirt.

Mounds of snow, twirling leafy windmills,

Cast shadows of victory flags on Zion’s hill.

Travelers on the beach in the cool of night

Delight in the company of their silhouette;

Following footsteps in the shadows of giants.

  1. Oh this is so wonderful to read. Especially the imagery given to the clouds and the sky. I had something to say about the clouds a few days ago , but do you think i could visualise and bring through the words. A delightful study.
    Leafy corsets, the starched shirt….joining people beach strolling beneath the beautifully patterned skies.

    1. Thank you for your wonderful comments, I appreciate your astute thoughts on the ending… yes, we are walking in some pretty huge ancestral footsteps. It humbles one to remember that fact. Thank you. I always enjoy your brilliant insight. Peace and blessings to you.
