His Shadow


One fine day in the daylight,

When I saw him on the road walking,

I saw a counterpart behind him,

Felt so many things are concealed,

His eyes were unlike any ones,

Light blue with a hint of grey,

Has dark brown, shaggy hair,

And a hallmark with scruffy beard,

Looking like he is speaking to oneself,

Walking on the deserted road,

With no burbling sound around,

But it just felt so elegant,

Having a partner when alone,

His shadow is just beautifully allied,

Then I turned towards,

Looked at myself in different ways.

I used to try and catch my shadow as a child. There is something alluring about shadows and I enjoyed this wonderful poem Shreya. Take care.
