Shadow On The Sun - Poem by Kelly Vinal

Cast a shadow any way
And it will reciprocate
It will trace away in eclipse
Far from the sun
Not problematic or uncertain
Preoccupied or burdened in doubt
A simple tether
One cannot elude

So what, so we dance away in twilight
‘Til every ounce of youth is gone
And we aspire
And we expire
As the tiger lily of summer’s run
Throw a shadow anyway
Any way
Upon that setting sun
