My Silent Silhouette

Lorna Lamon profile image

Lorna is a published writer with a particular interest in narrative poetry, which she finds therapeutic.

A shadow of movement’s creative colours

On a canvas of reflected thoughts

Cast by an inner portrait of shifting images

Embraced by my own transparency


A presence in a graceful wistful dance

Held within the portals of my dreams

A companion who shines in the moonlight

Connected eternally by my own existence


This fragile being drawn into the unreality

Of a raging tempest’s magnetic depths

On a journey to the land of sacred beauty

Held within the illusions of the mind


Yet in the sunbeams where beauty lies

A love that has no shadows glows brightly

Captured within my silent mirror image

Broken by the intrusion of dawn’s reality

        This is a wonderful piece of work.

        Our minds can see the beauty of so much when we reflect it back using that mirror image.

        Looking at the our inner thoughts, reflecting for a moment until dawn peeks its little light.. diminishing it for the day.

        Great write.

        Your poem deserves at least two reads to get both the first impression and the deeper meaning. So many beautiful phrases and mental images.

        So true Denise, a feeling perhaps that is not quite tangible - the unseen. Lovely to see you and thank you for your generous comment, appreciated as always. Take care.

        We hold a fragile thread through the darkness and mystery of the unseen until we arrive at the next dawn. I remember the artistry of those great film noir masters who would shadow the bad guys (and sometimes the good guys) in have darkness and half-light. It is some sort of a metaphor as to what we all hold within, isn't it.

        Blessings,

        Denise

        What a beautiful poem to transport us to a place where we have eternal love and it can never be taken from us, Lorna. Our mind can take us there any time, away from all our troubles and we can feel love and peace by going there in our dreams or in our thoughts- a world of our own making. Thanks for sharing!
