Poem: Shadow on the Wall

Shadow on the Wall

Only one shadow on the wall.
One glass of wine on the table.
A single chair drawn up to the fire.

while the candle on the sill burns low,
a solitary light, about to fall dark
as you look out the window,

at your car, lit by a street lamp
on an empty street,
late in the night of the soul.

The picture was taken in the parking lot of Natural Bridge, and at the time, I was anything but alone. You can read more and see more pictures of Natural Bridge in the post that follows this one. You can also click on the picture above for a larger version.
