Still Shadows

Black wolf shadows

Cast wide mouths in the moonlight

For the Gargoyles have now come to life

Climbed down the castle’s walls

To move about with me

Among us they crawl on all fours

Gnashing their teeth

Under the most beautiful smile

The wind sends warnings of their trickery

Whipping red colored leaves

Tearing them from their branches

Never again will they feel

The life of the tree flow through them

Yet, they’re finally free to blow about in the wind

For sometimes

We have to be torn from

What we believe is giving us life

To realize free is the only way to live

This poem is from my book : Petals Falling
