Downplay

 photo DSC_0264201_zpsohbovd1h.jpg
Discarded materials from a construction site gathering evening shadows, Southern Arizona
 
 


In a box of castoff wood,
Shadows do what shadows should:
Downplay darkness, accent light,
Making all the world seem right.
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 


Shadows find homes in strange places.

Remains of a discarded shoe, Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona
 
 


the longest journey—
discarding her worn-out shoes
so she can move on

 
~~ ~~ ~~ ~~ ~~ ~~ ~~ ~~ ~~
 


out of one life, into another…
