Shadows

Haiku: Shadows

 

Her lone silhouette

Forever etched in the stars

Shadows of my heart

 

Lyrics, Oh Undone, By Lisa Hannigan

Oh undone in a thundering spring came out swinging
The bell rightful ringing the tune
Oh ubbiddle that little and my heart comes apart
The sun on the morning moon
Oh untied with a sigh underneath the blue sky
Oh why do I do like I do?
Unmade like a bed
Unpinned like a thread
Oh easily led, oh undone

Oh undone in a lumbering Saturday sun
I’m a castaway thrown overboard
Oh unreasonably free now and seasonably green
I feel I could swim to shore
Oh unused to the truth
Don’t I bruise like a fruit
Oh do like you do to someone
Unmade like a bed
Unpinned like a thread
Oh easily led, oh undone

Oh undone in a thundering spring came out swinging
The song I am singing down low
Oh unsettled I get all I want in the haunting
While I sleep in the snow
Oh unravelled I have all I need and I see
I reap what I water and sow
Unmade like a bed
Unpinned like a thread
Oh easily led

Hi, and welcome to my blog site. My name is Ivor Steven, I live in Geelong, Australia. I'm a retired, part-time plumber, and a former Carer of my wife(Carole), for 30 years, who suffered from severe MS. I Write poetry about those personal thoughts, throughout and beyond my life as a Carer. I've been blogging for 18 months, and writing poems for nearly 18 years. Of course a lot of my poems are about my favourite subject Carole, but since I've been blogging my writings have become quite varied, humourous, mystical, observational, and even a few monster/horror poems.
