Life in Shadows

Hunardeep Kaur

The countless little shadows of life,
fleeting yet timeless
Expanding, collapsing,
re-emerging
filling in the empty spaces-
darkness sculpted by the lights of life,
emptiness pervaded with a subtle heaviness of meaning,
Treading along the shadows,
at times shadows become the life breath,
life a dream
and shadows the dreams outliving life...
