Shadow My Friend - Poem by Tirupathi Chandrupatla

Bright morning
Lone walk felt
All the more
In the company
Of my own shadow.

Sun behind
Shadow in front
Thin and long
Twice my height
I kept following
My own shadow.

The shadow kept
Changing at every turn
Taking the contour
Of the uneven ground
Shadow, my friend
A great companion.

I kept thinking
Of all the shadows
Cast by others
Throughout my life
Like great trees
They gave me comfort.

Shadow appears
Shadow vanishes
Leaf on a tree
Casts its shadow
A fallen leaf
Hides its own.
