Becoming shadow

Sometimes we’re in the meadow:
salved by the sun,
bathed in its light,
casting our shadows -
blessing the ground
with shade.

But, mostly,
we are in the comfort
of trees
shadow bound
‘hide and seeking’
in dappled daylight.

Other, darker, days
take us deeper,
chilling the bones,
lacking colour
and we become the shadows
on other lives.
