Recently, I shared a piece of flash fiction about shadows. Now I have a poem for you, on the theme. It was inspired by this video.
Now, normally, I shy away from prompts. I have so many story ideas, I already can’t keep up, but poetry’s different. Because it’s so much shorter, I can have an idea for a poem and jump on it right away. They don’t build up, so I have none in reserve.
Since I’ve been writing a lot of poems lately, and I want to keep that going, I have been actively looking for inspiration for poems. As such, I’ve found this site which is quite good.
But that’s enough preamble. Here is my poem.
Light slips through
the dark cracks
They are substance
Forming a mosaic
Cold parts are next to warm
there is every shade of color
Everything that is me
My shadow is what I will
