174/366 - Photo Technique Challenge: Shadows

2012.06.22

Light is an amazing artist.

Lesson Learned: Shadows, like people, change over time. (Not such an earth shattering lesson - eh??)

My Life Expressed In Shadows

Hanging – by a thread…
Wired and frantic – frenetic.
Complex and contorted –
Delicate and grotesque at once.

Product of cuts and slices –
Ever at the wind’s whim…
With every drifting degree – witness...
Another view – another me.

Then the light broke – tore-
Blasted through the haze – Years thick..
There it was – there I was –
On the wall – all over the wall.

A complexity never understood –
Until I saw it – cast in shadows –
My shadows as they look - to me
When the light passes through me.

Never the same – but sort of…
Holding still – never – for long.
So...hung a tag – with my name – but…
Its shadow blank – still.
