from over my shoulder

entry picture

 

I stood and stared-

a long time seeking a

welcoming gaze

that returned my greeting.

 

The World stared back

then went its way,

perhaps to lunch, perhaps

to play.

 

My friend the Mirror-

a listener of sorts,

in silence watched

and kept its thoughts.

 

I turned to challange the

darkness of those thoughts

that hid the reflection

of the life I now bought

 

you change the world 

when casting shadows;

to change it meaningfully

you need to move 

from out of the shadows.
