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)

 

 

 

A PALE REFLECTION

 

The shadows

of the taller trees

cast silhouettes

 

across the pool –

they overlay

a pale reflection

 

of the more

immediate scene.

Sometimes

 

I fail to grasp

immediate delights

allow

 

my darker memories

to shield me

from the light.
