Shadows

img_0931_inner_space_400We
Fought
The
Shadows,
And
The
Shadows
Ran.

The
Blackened
Bats
In
Darkened
Caves.

The
Wily
Foxes
In
Forest
Glens.

The
Creeping
Sleep
Upon
The
Land.

We
Fought
The
Shadows,
And
The
Shadows
Ran.

Redemption
In
This
Golden
Land.

And after the shadow run we are in the open contemplating the sun or Truth, but to stare at the sun for too long is to jeopardize one's ability to see. Ah, the beauty of poetry which can point at things transcendent without too much rationalism. Well done Nikos.

Thank you Nikos, a wonderful poet and artist.

Thank you for your kind words Emanuel; my process in writing my poems is that I first construct the philosophical,historical and mythological thematic study as the spine;then wrap the poem in imagery,shaped by wordsmithing and then finished with the rhythm scansion. The ancients called poetry the mystical art of the gods; somehow I think poetry is that and more, especially in today's modern world.So much more can be said in so much less words.
