Poem: Rainer’s Shade

Rainer’s Shade

Flare up like a flame and make big shadows I can move in
—Rainer Maria Rilke

Protected by your stare
Sun’s rays will burn me
If it spies me standing there

Under covers of the bed I made
Next to a pile of books to read
Window’s light a threat
Curtains now a shade

Dull shaped pattern of gray
Cover thick on the ground
Outline the place where I can stay

~Shannon P. Laws
