Dark traces of light
Who am I But the shadow Of what you see? My body As dark traces Of light On the water, Muddy And dirty. Who am I But one contrast In a sea of differences? Juxtaposed And laid out For you to peer, My body is embedded In the bed of that pond And in the mesh of those trees The shadows of time And space And life. Who am I But this?
