Kissing a Shadow

I seldom explain my poetry, if ever, but I wanted to mention that many poems are spiritual events expressed in a physical world. We are not beyond communicating with the spiritual world because we house a spirit within ourselves. The languages we speak are vastly different, however. Inspiration was a recent dream.The Castle Lady

by Evelyn M. Wallace
mind clouds framed in fear
grasping, but spun out of control
landed in a spray of tears
spluttering and then
gone…down a putting hole

a curio shop in my head buzzes with activity
she asked, what was the theme
awake now and retrograde emotion
momentum eternal it cannot be
we’re separate, together, forever

riding waves of elation now spring
go out and come in measuring
take courage in the shape of a sad smile
stay awhile…

it hurts
kissing a shadow.

    If you are an avid reader of English literature- not American literature (ahem!) – my title may ring of something familiar. If you feel up to the challenge please cite the Thomas Hardy novel which bears that phrase within his text and what the reference means within the context of the story. The reader who comes up with the correct response will have the opportunity for me to write a poem just for them and dedicated to the said person in their honor.
    Hope you love a challenge !
