Shadow and Light

handmade greeting cards, collage art

◊ ◊ ◊

No matter how fast you run,

your shadow more than keeps up.

Sometimes, it’s in front!

·

Only full, overhead sun

diminishes your shadow.

·

But that shadow has been serving you!

What hurts you, blesses you.

Darkness is your candle.

Your boundaries are your quest.

·

You must have shadow and light source both.

Listen, and lay your head under the tree of awe.

    This is Gramma, right? Any idea who is with her? Perhaps her cousin?
