Spotlight Poet: Jacqui Slade

Spot 4








Broken Shadows

Clouded spirits lament,
laden with grievances.
Their dreams smothered by
obsidian dimness.

Misty veils obscure, tears
rain on windows. Time is
suspended, overcast
by fate suffered. Clocks stop

and all hope is lost. Hearts
palpitating in doom
slip into slumber. Night
falls with weary visions.

Sun bounces on glass
reflecting clarity.
Weakness dissipated,
Strength in broken shadows.

  1. I really enjoy how this moves from a darker place to “strength in shadows”.


  2. Love how it’s played out. Very creative and talented writer.
