When shadows

As surprising

As a butterfly alighting

Something danced along my skin

Raising the fine hairs

Then sent them

Collapsing

Like dominos

I turned

You were watching

A match struck spark

I laid down my paint brush

Walking barefoot

Through the dimly lit house

The aroma of just snuffed candles

Spreading tendrils

Of heady perfume

As your shadow chased mine

Along the hall

  1. I just noticed your blog title sub-heading, (I’ve probably seen it before but it just came into focus 🙂 ) … I do like the sentiment. It made me smile. 🙂
