Chasing Shadows (Poem)
© 2019 Elaine Weiner-Reed
Chasing shadows… That is what
Music does – at least for a while.
Even as she takes her instrument into her
Hand, music is absorbing her…and then it takes over,
Becoming her voice. Music and song fills her
Head and chases away doubt, and sadness, and stress.
Joy replaces darkness
And hope takes flight
as her guitar strumming steers her heart into the light.
All shadows fade and are displaced.
There is no room for them here as
She steps full into the light,
her feet keeping time with words yet to be sung.
