A very nice haiku, Magyar. 'swollen shadows' is unusual but very effective...

There's a softness to this, but also traces of melancholy. Sometimes we do need to retreat and find that peaceful place. Lovely writing, D.

I picked up the strong feeling in this one, too. I'm getting a feeling that it is tied to you long poem from the other day.

very nice!!!

Magyar said...

Dev. My long time friend, I thank you for your kind visits!

Frank, Often... with the light source at a low angle, the shadow is larger than the projecting image, swollen.

K, I thank you, you being able to read into me... sometimes I need to step aside.

Sandy, Often things are seen in the shadows that... can't be seen during the brightest light.

Cindy, always heartful... I thank you for your warm remark.

As always, my friends, _m

__In the appropriate time zones... did we all turn our clocks back correctly and in a timely fashion?

Janice Thomson said...

Gosh how beautifully said M - often what we take to be the shadow is the substance...

Time turned back the night before :)

Magyar said...

Indeed, simplicity is the key of genius,very nice Magyar_BB

The true nature of a smile
That simple wisdom often found
Among the blades of grass.
