Beneath the Shadows

Beneath the Shadows

Beneath the shadows
Gone from light
Pass wondrous things:
Fairies in the night.

Seeing them pass
Between shadows and sound
I am still,
Holding my ground.

Then all at once
Within my sight
They begin to dance
Through endless light.

Within, without
Below, above
I see them dancing
Their song of love.

Oh, how I wish I could play
With these magical men,
Yet I must return
To the where and when

Of life –
It holds me tight
Not allowing my mind
To venture
Into the magical night.

– Sujantra McKeever.
