Shadows

images

Mere shadows are we; seen of the un-seen

Colors swirling on the surface of the vast

Wind in the sails of what has never been

 

All that is or was, once was between

Every bauble is only gold recast

Mere shadows are we; seen of the un-seen

 

Mover of all that appears on the screen

The last is to be first and the first last

Wind in the sails of what has never been

 

Swerve hither and yon, a seeming careen

The moment now is both present and past

Mere shadows are we; seen of the un-seen

 

The clasp of the cloak is a wisp of dream

Neither real nor not, as dreams never last

Wind in the sails of what has never been

 

The sailmaker is master of the dream

On the vast Ocean, no rudder, only mast

Mere shadows are we; seen of the un-seen

Wind in the sails of what has never been
