Long Shadows


Early Winter is approaching

The air announces late Autumn

In mid-afternoon shadows tend

To grow long on the ground

Leaves swirl in the wind

But most yet cling to branch

I feel it growing in me yet

Still a long way before frost

Coming cold hard ground and

Grass withering dormant

The clouds huddled in the sky

Greedily keeping all the sunrays

So I had lost my shadow but

Now the brilliant sun is beaming

The temperature pleasant

The breeze still refreshes

Because of the goddess

She fought away the clouds

Singlehandedly, of sheer will

So I come to realize that

It’s not the time of day

It’s not the season either

It’s the one who brushes aside the clouds

That I live to see
