The Shadows

Into the never

The child’s imagination strays

Chasing the shadows

That always go away

Drifting through the closet realms

In and out of the grey

Trying to be the predator

Instead of the prey

Armed only with fear

To keep them at bay

He falls into the sleep

  1. Imagination is something so powerful. It can help us conquer our fears, or on the contrary, it makes shadows and monsters appear bigger and invincible, causing us to run and hide. And true, those shadows and monsters seem even more terrifying in our dreams.
    Brilliant poem, again.

    • Thank you! I am lucky enough to see imagination in action through my grandkids. It truly amazing to watch and listen to them explain what is going on in their little brsins.
