    Noon (mid-day light) is a funny thing, perhaps because we define ourselves, other people, nature and buildings, by the shadows they cast.

    Light which casts these shadows has a dynamic even with something as small (and imprisoned perhaps) as a bonsai tree, within its iron straps. Are we chained too?

    the shadow
    the shadow overtakes
    is all his in this late hour

    Nice inner vision, Brad!
    __ Human hands have set the Bonsai; the Bonsai then, sets human eyes.

    life times turn
    as this suns shadow changes
    this bonsai smiles
