Shadows


the essence of Light
highlighted more in shadow
enhancing the view

pumpkins and candles
last remnants of Hallowe’en
holding the shadows

Posted in response to Eugenia’s weekly prompt, Shadows.

The image isn’t mine. It was uploaded to Lovethispic by ‘Mike-Ross’, and Eugenia selected it for this week’s challenge.

    Beautiful poems, Tom. I especially love the last one because I didn’t want Halloween to end.😞

      I too enjoy Hallowe’en, Eugenia, the last two years have been slightly different, but maybe next year will be a longer one…! I also usually celebrate a Mini-Halloween around Valentines in February! 😊

          I always hold it leading up to February 14th. It’s just the right time between New Year and Easter, but I suppose it could be held anytime! 😁

    Candles and pumpkins are good for a season of thanksgiving even if not in the states.

      Pumpkins don’t seem to be very popular here, apart from around Hallowe’en, Beverly. We don’t do Thanksgiving, and only recently have we become embroiled in the Black Friday nonsense. I’ve just read that the Welsh term for it, when translated back into English, is Silly Shopping Friday… 🙂

          No pumpkin pie. I’m not actually sure what happens to the pumpkin after it’s been carved… I suppose some folk eat it, although it’s something I’ve never had. That said, I haven’t carved a pumpkin either… 😊

            I would rather have apple or pecan pie but the pumkins need to be put out for wildlife to finish up.

              Now apple pie… there’s something!
              (I haven’t had pecan pie either.) (And for some reason, I thought pecan was a bird; ‘though I’ve probably mixed it up with pelican and toucan! 😊)

    The photo is beautifully mysterious. The shadows in it compliment your poem. I enjoy watching the candles flames creating shadow images.

      Me too, Isadora… I like the way they seem to dance with each other.
