We Can Say Things That Are Just Shadows Of Ourselves

The city series….

We are at times left behind

A shadow of ourselves

there was a photo of me

here

against the granite wall

falling

to this very day

knowing

not just a shadow now

with little to say

except

time does fly

when saying good-bye….

    • Thanks shelia. I created this “background” image for my previous post “We Say Good-bye To Ourselves”. It is a strange series. One with a lot of magic and lost. Light and shadow.
