Shifting Shadows

(A reflection on the Latin,
pulvis et umbra or
of our dusty shadowy existence)

The shadow sticks to you
When you depart from it,
Indicating something
In its faint outline.

In its pastel contours
It reveals, for a moment,
An imperfect representation
Of a shadowy existence.

Somber in the pale shadows
Of its adumbration
The penumbra hides the
Bright light of the universe.

June 2007, Hachioji
