your silhouette

“Love is saying 'I feel differently' instead of 'You're wrong.'”  {day 115}

Your Silhouette
by Paul Holmes

Before the final golden rays
Of the glowing orange sun
Cease to dance in lovely ways
Around clouds soft spun,
Your silhouette enchants me
And makes my spirits rise,
I eagerly wait to see
The blue beauty of your eyes.
Anticipation grows
Until, at last the shadows fade
Unveiling beauty as a rose
No longer left in the shade.
Your silhouette gives me
A taste of things to come,
A picture of loveliness set free –
My heart you have truly won.

A silhouette may only be an outline of an person or object but to me it is much more. The shape can express fun, joy or even love. My companion photo by jofabi brings this poem to life for me.

Suki, your image seems so familiar. Looks like the perfect end to a good day.
I love how there's just a hint of detail in Jolanda's silhouette- and the colors.
