Lying in my bed
Listening to loons calling
Their love songs
Across waters where
Moonbeams tap dance
A sparkling cadence
Of hushed affairs,
Windblown waves
Embracing one another
In tumultuous kisses
Hastily given under
Cover of night
Before slipping back
In an endless refrain
Of restless love.

Welcome to Dreams of Shadow and Light. My name is KJ Roe. Among my many weaknesses, words, water, and chocolate are eclipsed only by time with loved ones. When I'm not writing, you might find me taking way too many pictures of sunsets or dancing in my kitchen. Words help me find my way through the dark times and to hold onto the bright ones. May you find here a bit of light for your shadows.
