My shadow and I
poetic scribble by Bob Axell 2009


I see my shadow
It breathes through me
I see it leave
For a short while

It passes behind a tree
Out of my view
Out of my reach
And I feel lonely

My shadow returns
It reaches down and grasps
My ankles
And we walk along the path

My shadow and I
We keep up with each other
My shadow and I
