I am chasing shadows

but they dart away just out of reach

I grab

but clutching air

i come to the surface

and they are gone. silly string

does not hold them

as I spray the string

that grasps to gain


on moving molecules of air

that sloughing the string

flee into space

as we seek the shadows

that flee ever

grasping only air

only molecules so small

the laugh

and pass through keyholes

leaving only space

where shadows once had been.

  1. I guess that we all chase shadows at some time in our lives, others make shadows, and still others, no longer see shadows, but maybe art forms instead.

    Never be ashamed of the shadow world, but remember that it’s sadness that can sometimes open doors into love, which has no shadow, but our own, if we own our shadow.
