"Be the change you want to see in the world"- Mahatma Ghandi

We were shadows 

dancing on the wall 

behind the sunlight, 

growing with each flick 

of the wrist or graceful 

pirouette across smooth 

white plaster

not knowing when it ends, 

we run and watch the people 

go by. 

They don’t know we see, 


know. To them we are

 reflections  in the summer sun, 

we are living mirrors and 

faceless strangers. 

We are shadows on the wall 

until the sun sets 

and we walk off into the moonlight
