Life;reflections on, -and deathFlames flicker,
to Plato’s shadows
playing on the wall.
We’re living lives
in half light,
of their own
of the fire as potent
as fear of
extinguishment.The poetry is mine (!) ,the illustration has a far more illustrious background being from Joris Hoefnagel, 16th century flemish artist.

Once again, your poetry speaks to me. Thought provoking and elegant.
Hello Janet! I wrote this a couple of years ago – I am writing less and less poetry – sometimes I am nudged into penning one, and I always enjoy the endeavour, I rather miss it really. I am concentrating more on illustration at the moment, but it will be a phase I think! Keep well, regards, Anne
