Shadow Haiku


giddy with power
we teach our shadows new moves

leaving them no choice

for their continuing inspiration.)

Looks like you are doing tai chi! I love this photo- and the haiku!

I like the idea of making shadows learn... I wonder what the shadow would do if it had a choice?

That's fun! Oh gosh imagine if our shadows took on a life of their own!

Strong! I like the idea of teaching the shadows new moves...sounds like it could've been a Bob Seger song if he'd thought of it himself! ;->

"Giddy with power," indeed. Excellent photo to accompany a very fun -- yet right on target -- poem.
