Poem: Bound to Shadow

Not IK


Bound to Shadow


How high the water flows today,
how swift the current –
I watch a mallard drake float by
riding with the torrent.
How high the water flows today.

How blue the sky overhead
above the trees –
I watch a robin go by
and hear droning bees.
How blue the sky overhead.

I am bound to the cool shadow,
and not the sunlight –
I watch a leaf catch in the water
and drift out of sight.
I am bound to the cool shadow.
