SHADOW OVER THE WORLD




I am so sorry I overlooked linking "Shadow" 
to her blog address:  HERE it is!


SHADOW

I hear the Peeps all say
That it is her birthday
She can be seen in lightness
In the dark she writes less

Her poems are exquisite
As Peeps who visit
Her blog will shout
These pages are about

Everything ever created
Alone or, well...mated
Sorrow, love, life here
Faith, Hope, and Fear

All aspects of our Acceptance
At times written-in reticence
But always stories of forever love
Mindful of the Great Lover Above

Shadow, there is none like you
Nobody quite so truly true
I wish you a HAPPY BIRTHDAY
From Steve in Naples-On-The-Bay

Peace and Love to the Peeps!

Hey hey hey! You copying ideas! Good Sweet thief Peep.
Well, between the two of us she must have received a few"HB"... will she like it or maybe she wanted to take the day OFF blogging and we have ruined it?

Before I realized Shadow was a person, I took it to be a birthday poem for your own shadow. I thought that was an interesting idea too.

Now that just tickles my heart. Keep up the poetry.

That is a fitting tribute to Shadow. Her poetry is simply magic! Yhanks for honoring her like that. You are a good person.

Hi Steve - When I saw your profile you reminded me of my grandfather. He passed away in 2004 at the age of 100. He played in many orchestras as a violin player and other capacities, including some in Orange City, Florida and in Germany. He was one of the chief engineers for VOA in Germany and worked for WLW in Cincinnati. He wrote an autobiography (never published) of his life. Anyway, its nice to meet you!
