Artist's description:

Shadows on the Stairs

The angelic shadow of motherhood
gently dances up the stairs.
Springs sweet illumination
breathes blossom warmth upon the air.

Shadows combine to furnish protection
warmed tenderly by the devoted sun.
Steady steps are then taken
two souls reside for now as one.

The shadowed hands slowly unravel
dispersed by the maturing sun.
Nurtured steps scatter independent
youthful abundance two are one.

Autumnal glow then briefly captures
the stature of the man?
Brutally clothed in uniformed fashion
bulled boots drag him innocently on.

Twisted silhouettes of despair grip
intently as they descend.
Kindred shoulders bare him onwards
mother’s grief, dark winters end.
