Shadows

Tone Curve Experiments - 1
The shadows fall around me.
The sun has left and the air is still.
Words are racing through my mind.
Again, I cannot rest in my home.

The shining moon is watching me.
Like a beacon, its bright light is a guide.
Above, thin clouds dance around it.
I weave my thoughts into a song.

I walk through the woods.
It eases my troubled mind.
Sharp branches may grasp my sleeve,
but I love to spend the night here.

I am alone in this wild place.
The world of men is far away.
The midnight moon is high above me.
Shadows fill my mind with peace.
