Weekend Writing Prompt #89 – Silhouette

Time for Sammi’s Saturday challenge

Come out of the shadows,
Don’t be afraid,
I will not hurt you.

I cannot.
I have no substance.
I am not whole.

Let us join,
Silhouette and shadow,
Each part of one entity.

We’ll dance together,
Extending into darkness,
Teased by the light.

Now we are one,
United forever,
No-one can hurt us.

We cast our silhouettes
On windows and walls,
We are real.



About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.

    “We will dance together, extended by light.” This is so beautifully written, I can already see myself to save it, read it & then re-read it!
    Amazing start of my day!
