SHADOW(S)

blue autumn skies
folded into mountains
purple shadow

© Jane Reichhold (1937-2016)

such a hot day
my shadow needs to cool down
under the willow

© Kyoshi Takahama (1874-1958)

such a hot day
denizens of shadows
below the tree

such a hot day
cherry blossoms falling
in lieu of sweat

denizens of shadows
lovers frolic
dreamy noon tryst

below the tree
ravenous fiends
pluck dehydrated worms
