still shadow

unchanging and erect one day
you made the sun reign
a perfect thing
the shadow in its place

was it all for one instant?
some simple touch
to trace your breath
and feel the marks

then in one heavy moment
stopped and made stone again

hold still the shadow
return to watch it all
donÂ’t stop

we try
to hold

from: some simple shadow + shadow moment [ for year’s end ]
