Light And Shadow - Poem by Tirupathi Chandrupatla

Picture a well
Lighted object
It looks real
Only with shadow.

A picture shown
Without a shadow
Simply loses
All objectivity.

Exception maybe
von Gogh's series
Of sunflowers
Masterpieces of art

Sun's an object
That's shadow free
Throwing brilliant
Rays on nature.

An object follows
Its faithful shadow
Length of shadow's
A measure of time.

    What of an object that is of it's own inner light. Bringing forth light like a sun. An inner light
    that one cannot perhaps see but is all aglow...like love. (Report) Reply
