Shifting Shadows 2011
The shadow moved right to left
In incremental steps that shrink seconds,
To disappear into the sun overhead.
That shifts about rotating time pieces.
The shadow moved left to right
In miniscule steps that grew in time
To finally stretch into the night skylight,
Where the moon shifts through its phases
Where the stars always shine above the clouds.
