tiptoe

January 27, 2020

getting some hints
about the way forward
with the repetitive stillness
of the folding of the year

under rain over waves
step by tiptoe step
retracing steps that fell
on other cobbles

tiptoe through the
chiaroscuro;
is it shadow,
is it hiding me?
come tiptoe through the
chiaroscuro
with me
and my shadow

like a chameleon
camouflaged by
the background
thus creates space

we all know
the safety of the cage
the comfort of
being behind bars

tiptoe through the
chiaroscuro;
is it shadow,
is it hiding me?
come tiptoe through the
chiaroscuro
with me
and my shadow

the goddesses of the waters
have returned unexpectedly
characters from past volumes
dusty with life and neglect

falling where the light falls
darting where the light darts
lying where the light lies
calling where the light calls

tiptoe through the
chiaroscuro;
is it shadow,
is it hiding me?
come tiptoe through the
chiaroscuro
with me
and my shadow
