A Riddle

Silhouettes and shadows tell tales
Bending light makes colors emerge
A lightning sword cuts through an opaque sky
Twilight softens our eyes

Today at dVerse there is no prompt word,  rather a poem that explains a feeling,  concept or idea without telling what it is. What do you think?

About Mary (tqhousecat)

I am a wife and a mother of two grown children. I love Jesus and sharing my faith through written words. I currently have a poetry blog and also write on medium.com. My main focus is hope in Christ. I only wish that whoever reads this will be blessed, inspired and occasionally amused.

    I’ll guess a thunderstorm at twilight, but I’m not sure

    I am guessing your poem refers to telling truth/lies… perhaps a sudden realization that occurs. I especially love the image of “twilight softens our eyes”… Its an incredibly brilliant write!💖

    PS: My blog is re-activated. I had to pay WordPress monthly bill…. sigh…💖

    • Thank you for this comment. My poem is about perspective. Hope is my word for the last 4 years and my acronym for hope is Having Our Perspective Enlarged, so I am happy you see hope in my words!
