Shadow & Whisper ~ Gordon Mason


My shadow
is a spread
of dead leaves

Behind your voice
a whisper circulates
like a wreath

Boats on the river
are twigs
caught on the current

Blue jacaranda
blinds the martins
into a false sky

Memory of your music
is caked
with scales of rust

This is our world
through
a gouached glass



Gordon is a Scottish poet who splits his time between Scotland and Spain, writing in both nation's languages. He has a blog at http://catapulttomars.blogspot.com/ which accepts submissions.

I enjoyed this, the fourth stanza is particularly lovely
