<center><b>Twilight of the Soul</b></center>

<center>Tender hills cast shadows 
across the placid water,
old age ushers twilight -
the border between worlds.</center>

<center>Lake surface reflects fire
from the sun’s passing -
final burst of life
in everlasting day night
of celestial renewal,
surpassing the darkness
transcending the light.

<b>What is Cascade Poetry?</b>

A cascade poem is my own invention. This style of poetry consists of a group of standalone poems that link together to create a larger picture. Each poem should encompass a solid idea, group of images and theme... but when put together form a journey. Today is part five, the fifth poem in the series that will eventually form a longer piece. If you would like to check out the previous poems to see how the overall impression is growing, please follow the links below.

For six days, I will be publishing a poem each day. With the final day linking all the poems together, and also making a video poetry reading. As with my poetry please series (check out links below), this short film will be more than just me reading the poem in front of a camera. Instead I will attempt to find video footage to compliment the poem, express its imagery/themes and set it to music.

I don't want to include any analysis with any of the poems, although I may include a brief discussion on the form and ideas in the final post. This form of poetry is meant to be like an unfolding tapestry, as each day passes the bigger picture is revealed 🙂

<b>Thanks for reading.</b>
