A Pale Reflection

This poem was written very shortly after ON REFLECTION which has just been posted on MAL’s FACTORY (Poetry & Prose Poem Blog)






The shadows

of the taller trees

cast silhouettes


across the pool –

they overlay

a pale reflection


of the more

immediate scene.



I fail to grasp

immediate delights



my darker memories

to shield me

from the light.
