some simple shadow

touch one perfect moment
and hold still in the sun
an unchanging thing

rain stopped and made
erect for one instant
a heavy stone

was it some simple shadow
all again?

return one day and hold your breath
then trace it into place
watch the shadows you made

don’t we try to feel the mark
and stop it?

from shadow moment [ for year’s end ]
