everything but my
shadow

    A striking image, Jason

    autumn evening
    following my shadow
    into the shadows

    Jason,
    A salient image of ourselves_! A reminder that we all leave somthing behind... no matter how large our broom.

    Beautiful image, yet wistful too--a return to the spirit of wonder as we become childlike, noticing things we cannot explain...

    Very nice!

    the broom & I
    cavorting
    with our shadows

    your words brought
    forth a deep
    jungian "yes"
    to this
    simple truth

    Another gem, Jason. I admire the simplicity of the image.

    through the showers, then the sun
    my shadow--
    darker than usual

    I'm late getting to this, but what
    a fine moment, Jason!
    Some things remain untouched...

    day lengthens--
    yet fearing
    the thoughts of tomorrow

    Excellent Jason! A gem truly

    Here is another but with a different idea altogether.

    construction finished
    builders gone
    the owners nameplate gleams

    clear autumn waters--
    this stork searches
    within the tree top
