The Space Between Shadows

Poetry Month Prompt #1 (optimism)

By Kiersten WeldonPublished about a month ago Updated about a month ago 1 min read

Hope resides in the space between shadows,

In the glittering chasms of haunted goodbyes,

When we cannot find it in the truths that we expose,

And we see through the pretense straight into the lies.

If we let go of our self-imposed darkness,

And embolden our souls to reach for the light,

We'll capture its brilliance, both vibrant and fleeting,

And welcome the sunrise, like an optimist might.


This poem was written for the Writer's Digest April 2024 PAD Challenge for Day 1. (All prompts can be found here.)
