Shape-Shifter ~ a Haiku

“closet” by Kat Myrman

shape-shifting shadows
rouse rumbles of deep-rooted fear
though light hovers near

For the Jung of Heart

Dark side of my soul
Embodying all I am
My shadow knows…me.

Her Shadow Looms – A Triolet

For Jane Dougherty’s poetry challenge this week. The prompts are the painting you see here by Munch and the words: winding – moonlight – follow – heavily – path. The theme is “moonlight”. I chose to do a triolet for this challenge. i was able to use all the promp words but one…follow (but it is implied…:)) To read other poems visit Jane’s blog HERE

Moonlight along the winding path
where heavily her shadow looms
leads to the place she saw him last,
moonlight along the winding path,
her dreams of love left in the past
when she was young and flowers bloomed,
moonlight along the winding path
where heavily her shadow looms.
