This column is dedicated to one of the highest art forms in the sphere of human communication—Poetry. Nothing is nobler than the expression of human emotion. All poetry is perfect, no matter what the format or the background of the poet. A voice is a voice. With poetry, you get more than words. You get rhythm, you get sound, you get silence, you get mood—you get emotion. What more can you ask? This column is also dedicated to all the people who have ever lived, those here now, and those yet to come. God bless the poets among you. They carry the soul of the world.

Long Shadow

Long Shadow - The bond between two people in love is unique. Time and place do not matter.

Together they stood
In the lengthening shadow of time,
The sun pausing in the winter sky,
Not yet disappeared below the horizon

The thought of place bowed
To the contentment of being together,
Shoulder to shoulder, hand in hand
Bathed in the warm orange light

In the Golden Hour
They could see themselves
Through the lens of simplicity
And the detail in the shadow

On the city’s barren earth
In the lateness of the day
There was only one thing that remained,
Their devotion to each other
