Versions of light.

Light conquers darkness, brightening everything.

What’s that in the corner, a shadow?.

Yes, a compromise to co-exist.

Sky-blue and daylight, sky-glow and

nightlight, would that by serendipity we understand

that light eludes the grave.

Shadow dance

Shadows aren’t really the same as a person, are they?

Off course they aren’t, they are simply dark images cast by the exposing rays of the sun, not very important.

Sighing in relief, that’s very good mummy cos’ I think I just saw daddy and aunt Monica’s shadow kissing.

Keeping out the icy persona,

it let the light filter through risking

exposure of it’s darkest side.


The shadow falls behind a

distorted self image reflecting the minds view

of fears and worries; disproportionate.

Have an awesome Monday folks, don’t let the shadows scare you.

Perfect morning.

Oh wow! Such a beautiful, refreshing sight first thing on a soon to be hectic Saturday morning. This was turning out to be a perfect morning. Wait! where’s my camera? Can’t get to that right now, my phone, yes that should do.

Reaching into her pyjama pockets she pulls out an iPhone six taking extra effort to stay perfectly calm; wouldn’t want to startle the butterfly. She was so excited, been awhile she enjoyed such a sight. Camera focused, perfect view and …

“Mummy, I want juice.” called a high-pitched voice shattering the moment. Butterfly gone, hands shaking, camera focus offset, resultant image blurred.

There goes my hope of enjoying a few minutes by myself.

“Morning darling.”

Note to self: next time shut the garden door that way I can hear her coming.

It was still a perfect morning, not really how I imagined it.
