The Shadows Shadow

Goodnight my friend.

I say my prayers of the Earth 

of the four winds and the rains .

You have given all that 

is inside your heart .

I will think of you when 

the moon drinks from the rivers cove 

within the cold ashes of the night fires 

secreted in warm solitude 

of a hollow 

beneath the low lonely trees . 


Only the mountains now 

seem immortal . 

It is true and right to die . 

We navigate the high passes

over into the valley 

of the shadow below .


My Friend 

I will look for you 

when the moon chases the horizon.

I will look for you 

deep in the shadowlands

of mist.


will we come together 

over the shade of the wind ,

inside the shadows 

of the shadows . 


Goodnight my friend, 

travel that wind into the mists,

cold and damp 

and I will say my prayers .
