Elusive



hidden in shadows
elusive truths lie in wait
on the quest for light

on the quest for light
paths to follow may deceive.
wrinkles in the soul

wrinkles in the soul
smoothed by promise of belief
hidden in shadows

  1. Wow. And a glorious photograph to go with it. The photo was enhanced by the words which were enhanced by the photo.
    Thank you.

  2. Firstly, what a perfect click! :)

    And secondly, what a beautiful poem. I loved your work with images and metaphors.

    "wrinkles in the soul
    smoothed by promise of belief
    hidden in shadows" - My favourite part.

  4. It's true. Sometimes, we never know where truth might lead us, especially if truths are really lies in disguise.

    Great haiku!

  11. Shadows and light. Life is a dance amid dappled light. Sometimes one lands on shadows; sometimes, on light.

  14. Oh Karen this is exquisite...the rhythm of your poem and the rhythm of shadow and light across the road are in synchronicity...this makes me think of a zen koan...elusive circles the mind spins trying to understand what is beyond comprehension.

  17. Hi there - I see you have two blogs!

    It would be funny to find one of us is lurking in the background of the pictures we took on Kangaroo Island ten years ago! We should check!

  18. Hi Karen, thank you for this nice prompt. I love those hiding places, those wrinkles in the soul. Goodness knows we most all have plenty of those. I have some that I would like to stay hidden [:)].
