my shadow pulls a briefcase
from the car trunk

    end of my road
    wintry day's end -
    hotel's registration desk

    her shadow
    on the bedroom wall-
    reaching for the light

    street light-
    walking past light pole
    my shadow races ahead

    sun
    warms the
    light luggage

    table candle--
    as she walks by
    my heart and shadow flutter

    dusk romance
    as we kiss our shadows hit
    the door of a beach house

    Scorching heat -
    for a moment, the briefcase's shadow
    cools down the dry grass

    vacation ending --
    red sun setting
    lower in the sky
