TAO OF WALKING WITH SHADOW
Walk along the canal on a sunny Sunday,
shades, cast on any side, chose the way,
Shadow plays among shimmering shades,
hides and emerges from frame, a trusted aide.
On ground, images, impression all touchdown,
autographs, recognition, the art not known.
Whispering wind chases birds in open spaces,
breeze cools retiring hearts in breathing paces.
Breath body, temple and shadow form a trinity,
visual, aural landscapes of our world gone crazy.
Out of shade, shadow integrates, changes shape,
Mindful breaths, silent walk, not seeking escape.
