Well Defined



I will walk away from
the crowds and their buzz
finding an island to float serene
on way away from cravings
looks and strong odors
to my own shadow
well defined




Poem from the unpublished collection Intertextures – Crossing Rivieras, 2013.

  1. Your choice of shadows is symbolic, and we have much to learn (at least I do) about retreating into our shadows. Our shadows, often stretched well beyond our size, may be one of the few things well-defined during this time. Even when we step into the light, we cannot completely separate ourselves from neither the shadow nor this looming pandemic. Stay protected in your shadow. ❤️
