I am captivated by the creative aspects of shadows. Please enjoy this delicate poem from my WP friend, S. Thomas Summers. See the full post at Ornithology to view the delightful photo that inspired this poem.
The mourning dove insulates
her nest with the shadows fairies cast,
a darkness that softens earth
and, when carefully secured
between the twigs and stems
the bird weaves into a small bowl,
layers as thin as whispers,
the nest will well cradle her eggs,
foster an ease, the creature’s soft song,
a music that soothes each moment it graces,
smoothing a minute into hours.
