"Life is but a walking shadow."

~Shakespeare (Macbeth)

Dark water tugs at my hand
Waiting to pull me anywhere but land -
From everything I've known.
I look up to the sky -
The light I have not been denied
Is one star.
The clouds disappear,
The water clears,
And everything is calm
After the storm.

I wrote this after an actual storm that flooded the pond in my backyard. I looked at it and saw it reflecting one star =)
