The Shadow

The Shadow

The shadow moves slowly. As if it
were choosing it path very carefully,
even though it has made the
same trip everyday for years.

Slowly curving 180 degrees,
keeping out of the sight of the sun.

The shadow is the spitting image
if a pine tree, slightly elongated,
a bit disproportionate, and black.
Lying on the face of the earth.

It is a slave of the sun for without it,
the shadow could no longer exist.
