Alluring Shadows

(A colored pencil drawing I completed back in 1986 during a college art class that I recently digitally edited using the free online PicMonkey photo editor.)

Drifting on scented winds
Across the azure horizons
Beckoning in the distance

Lost in memories bliss
Yesterdays and reckonings
In galaxies of cobalt space

A future that awakens
Into days yet pledged
And unknown sapphire dreams

Hiding behind the gaze
Of cerulean danger resides
In ever alluring shadows

Shadows

Where we often hide

Shadows
Where our fears reside

Shadows
Where the dark lives inside

Light
Where we need to turn

Light
Where we fear we’ll burn

Light
Where we are bound to learn

Shadows
Where it exists is light

Shadows
Where they fall is alright

Shadows
Where the light shines bright

Shadow Magic - InspirationThis is the photograph that became the inspiration for this painting.  It was taken outside the arena at my daughter’s last horse show. I love the simplicity of the shadow outline of a rider on horseback.  I gave it a twist with a colorful background in the painting above.

Thanks for stopping by! ~M
