and pleasant words might say
Despite the brightness of
our everyday pathways
there is a shadow inside all of us…
intertwined and leaking smoky tendrils
that wrap loosely around the light..
The dark and the bright mix and smile
together exchanging familiar knowing glances
revealing a kinship from ages past
till not even the wisest
of eyes could tell
which one was which
