hand shadow showing freedom

A true reflection of us,
A mute play of our existence
They are what we are,
there lies no pretense

A dynamic painting,
An abstract
entailing shape
and hiding detail

We create boundaries
and get bound by them
They break our boundaries
and fall beyond them

They stalk us
when there is light
and play hide and seek
when it gets dark

To an eyes of a child
They are humor and surprise
To an eyes of a wise man
They are an indicator of time

We can touch them
but, we can't feel them
We can touch them
but, we can't confine them

yet unknown friend
who stands by us

Shadows - I find their existence mysterious. I feel they have life, I feel they don't have life. Actually, I feel they have partial life which is dependent on our existence.They are separated yet an integrated part of us.

Every time I visit this site its more than just an experience, the music , the poem and the general mood is unfathomable and its all intoxicating. They take me to a state of unparalleled existence, an euphoria.

The poem is beautiful and indeed our shadows are an unkind reflection of our own reality. Such is its chastity that they burn away any pretense.

Very beautifully written.
