The White Shadow

The white shadow lurking behind the spectrum of light gave a minuscule glimpse. Since time immemorial, we have played trivial games as I searched for its essence. Often, it deviated from its place to hide or to smile. I, like a little mermaid, tried clenching it in my fist, admonishing it for unleashing the child within.

  1. I really like this and it is true that it does bring out the child within us all. Almost everyone I know just gets that feeling of awe when they see a rainbow, especially here in Southern CA where it does not rain very often and so they are fairly uncommon.

    Thanks so much for sharing this for this week Theme Thursday, it was wonderful. Gladly hoping to see what you do next week.

    God bless.

    • Offcourse it is 🙂 I thought whole of Southern CA has rains forever as South West gets too much of rains….but then what is rare makes one love it too 🙂

      Its a pleasure to share with you always 🙂
