Dark Intent


Slowly peeling away layers

Of hidden intent

Shadow reveals itself

Veiled behind rugged charm

Destroying innocent dreams 


Until life force sings again

Even in the darkest of days


V.J. has asked us to investigate the “paranormal” in her Halloween theme.  The above photo shows a spooky shadow lurking in the background. Also, a portal of light appeared as I darkened this photo.

‘The eye is always caught by light, but shadows have more to say.’   (Gregory Maguire)


V.J.’s Challenge: Veil

Patrick’s Challenge: Rugged

    Oh wow! I see a woman’s leg, oddly enough – a leg that showed up in a recent painting I did – intuitively. Spooky….

    Amazing photo, many things can be seen in it, I do see the leg, and the face of a brown bear (between the leg and the tree- behind the tree almost). Your poem is filled with wisdom.
