beyond light and shadow

December 13, 2011- Small Stones
beyond light and shadow   by  Teri H Hoover



With these wonderful feet
and a grace filled heart.
I am transported 
through 
light and shadow
  The balance
between 
movement
and
stillness
am 












A crowd of tall pine trees wave  me on... 
saying this way, this way, this way.

  1. Your poem brought to mind a favorite of mine - Mark Strand's Keeping Things Whole:

    In a field
    I am the absence
    of field.
    This is
    always the case.
    Wherever I am
    I am what is missing.

    When I walk
    I part the air
    and always
    the air moves in
    to fill the spaces
    where my body's been.

    We all have reasons
    for moving.
    I move
    to keep things whole.

    The shape you've chosen for your poem mimics an upsidedown tree. Happy Holidays, Teri. I continue in quiet appreciation this month. But - I couldn't help visiting!
