Casting Shadows #poem

When the morning sun rises,

Face the opposite way.

Take a look at your shadow,

As it charges the day.

Its shoulders are squared,

Its neck stretches tall.

It carries no baggage,

No weight… big or small.

With feet planted firm,

Down to earth, always grounded.

A pure reflection of you,

There’s no chips, all well-rounded.

The shape is unique,

Hugs your curves, shows your form.

It casts a shade of beginnings,

Like your own fearless storm.

-Didi Oviatt
