dancing shadows

where does the shadow come from,
he wonders
is it the cloud hovering
between the sun and the ground
he walks on

shadows are a sign
there is light somewhere,
she mutters
just remember to dance with them
cherish hidden light
make the sky jealous of how
you look so in love with rainclouds
