Shifting Shadows

The sun was on the edge of the sky,
Sunrays had gone dim as the heaven became gloomy,
Society was as quiet as still waters.
It was a colossal shift in daylight veracity;
Kids were under a tree measuring their height.

As I gazed from a far sight, I saw shadows shifting,
As I gazed again, I saw my folks on top of a barrel;
I was dazzled by flamboyant day of bliss,
It was a vivid dream that drove them to a turret!

A full moon in the midst of their day,
I thought it was disaster,
I thought it was ascension,
I thought it was retreat;
Overwhelmed with joy, I eventually fainted!

It was unique delight after centuries of sightlessness;
It was as though I came from a deep snooze,
I felt released as I saw shadows kept shifting!

Shifting Shadows
 
The sun was on the edge of the sky,
Sunrays had gone dim as the heaven became gloomy,
Society was as quiet as still waters.
It was a colossal shift in daylight veracity;
Kids were under a tree measuring their height.
 
As I gazed from a far sight, I saw shadows shifting,
As I gazed again, I saw my folks on top of a barrel;
I was dazzled by flamboyant day of bliss,
It was a vivid dream that drove them to a turret!
 
A full moon in the midst of their day,
I thought it was disaster,
I thought it was ascension,
I thought it was retreat;
Overwhelmed with joy, I eventually fainted!
 
It was unique delight after centuries of sightlessness;
It was as though I came from a deep snooze,
I felt released as I saw shadows kept shifting!
