Hues Of Emotion
by Okan Emanet

Either at dusk or at dawn,
all hues of emotion rise from the moon.
Though tomorrows cast a spell on our shadows,
life will be beautified by poem-hearted fellows.

Take the night; see how eloquently it wears in black,
and conceive of the beloved of whom there lies a distinct lack.
But the light’s hands lead you to a sighing sight
When your heart manages to separate black from white.

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

Creeping
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

The shadows were creeping like golden summer,
Upon arising covertly, from crimson dawn mists,
And they shrank at noon to a realm just under,
Then idly resumed, their daring sunshine risks,
'Til plum twilight, and a kingdom they'd missed!

Shadows
by N. A

Bone ripped from flesh,
Flesh ripped from bone.
Twisted shadows always waiting,
For the next soul to wander into their embrace.

Eyes of the sky,
Smile of a prince,
Lips of satin.
He asks to dance,
So I shall never stop swaying.

Shadow Flowers
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

I was a vivacious, aroma loving barista, laboring midnights in a coffee shop,
Offering tasty drinks to fellow night owls, while others dreamed of lollipops.

My work was so pleasant and suited me, for I was enamored of neon nights;
And I had forever been this way, as sable beauty is seen in a different light.

I was an eager connoisseur of coffee, and we offered so many rich varieties,
Underneath the pink, hoot owl moon, like lush offerings under papaya trees.

Friends and I were like night and day, and we had wild times when we could,

Shadow Dancers
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

here they come again
windblown fugitives of gold
dancing with flowers

sun's shadow dancers
green fluttering leaves darkly
silhouette party

purple birds glide by
dusky beats upon the ground

Slow Dancers
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

In shadows of blue
clouds slow dance across the skies
Tender sunlight dream
follows mute, chronic drifters
round and round the blooming world

O'er shady forests
desert flowers and green seas
blithe homes and fast cars
Greeting fields of lavender

Shadow Waltz
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

Born in brilliant rose dawn, when dreams were still possible,
I'm a silent ebony shadow, who has never felt the fiery sun.
In cool, dark regions I live, where colors have come undone.
Yet, in this world of dazzle, it is I who ofttimes feels invisible.

But I am all that it is, waltzing on the far side of gold beams,
Until the time of my cheerful undoing, in the rich noon hour!
Then flower scents whirl, as my creator flourishes his power,
Before mellowed afternoon, when he lets me reign supreme!
