The World of Shadow
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

My shadow creeps after me-
It stays and stays
On sunny days.
It does things with
Other shadows.
My shadow sniffs a
Black flower.
It looks upon a
Black bird.
The world of shadow

Noctuary II
by Nkwachukwu Ogbuagu

Echoes of summons ring on.
With them a sonorous clamour for painted lines.
The rim of night stretches and holds fast to
a colossal nocturne hung on furs-and-clouds walls,
and a concentric image of life rotates on
edges of weak silver.

Long-dead poets campaign openly for verses –
among them Wordsworth and Eliot –
each putting a swagger to his arrogant gait of lines,

Darkness
by Aryan Bhardwaj

Darkness being an introvert, has
a different meaning for me

It not only means no light
but a world away so bright

Darkness, the absence of people or
a crowd so large...

it prevents a busload of feelins

Noctuary
by Nkwachukwu Ogbuagu

The absolute reign of night lasts forever
And throbs from wet drums within lengthen its royal reign.

Constellations stud the lashes with midnight views;
Salutations from the owls’ wing-flaps welcome the
Sponge web of the womb of this hour
And the sable-garmented, freezing, old, festered
December day lives on.

Arrangements of coloured words without voice begins.

Neighbours
by Nkwachukwu Ogbuagu

Moon is a lonesome voyeur
Who peeks down lustfully at the silhouetted nudity of Night.
Peccant, she does it with overt grandeur,
Reluming steadily crackling embers of a smouldering light.

Fallow Moonlight
by Patti Masterman

Fallow moonlight, under trees
Darkling sun the animals see
Gloom-grey ruins, the fled day glows:
Nothing's bright where nothing grows.

Fallow moonlight, what comes forth
In the darkness' questioned worth?
Shapes around, not fit for day,
Nightmares bound: just let them be.

Tango of Darkness
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

Fragrance night, spicy
Breeze tangoes near tomorrow
to green world stage raves
Howling blues stir lilac dark
Starlight, whistling in the park

Clouds keep on drifting
in times of vanishing moon
It's nature's wild dance
a sultry summer tango
