Word Shadows

Elusive shadows
Thoughts banter within my soul
Waiting to be penned


Creative Writing Ink

Footprints in the sand
As elusive as the words
Floating from my heart

Really like how the second stanza connects to the first, as well as the emphasize placed on the words coming from the heart. Cool pic prompt response.

You've got some excellent phrases going here, that make pictures as vivid as the actual photograph. Thoughts bantering in my head seems to happen to me a lot, too. ;-)

Love the first haiku - completely related to it, in my own way.
