Sharon Lopez Mooney: Solitude And Emptiness

Image: Unsplash, downloaded ( 10.12.2022.

Profile of a shadow

He lays half dozing,

legs slightly bend into the softness

head turned to the window

stretching width and breadth of the wall

barely a hand’s touch away

his face turned toward infinity

The house is as silent as he

not a whisper of the woman

in the chair across

watching him watching

the rolling green wild

He is visitor to her domain

of solitude and emptiness

they bring different eyes

have come through different paths

to this collision of their dreams.
