Grey Shadow

Image

In the dim light

Of the near future

Grey shadow

Adds dimension

To solidity

That was always

There

Though perception

Wasn’t yet born

Into the moment

Called now

A breath brought it

Into existence.

Or was it 

The thought

That preluded it?

Ah, there was something,

Something in-between

An emotion or feeling

That attached itself

To thought before

And then came 

The smile

Or rather, the breath

An easing into being

A sigh of gratitude

For grey shadow

Outlining the form

All around

Giving definition

To what is

While what was

Blends into darker

Shades 

Of demure memory.
