Shadow Blessings

  

Shadows abound
as I live through each day
only to increase as the sun
decreases

If I forget my flashlight
as I go to check my mail
I must rely on my touch
to not allow my own shadow
stopping me from unlocking
my mailbox

Where once these toils
overwhelmed they are now
just part of my life

Yet I feel blessed
because I now know
my plight could
be much worse

I'm a philosopher, dreamer, poet, writer -- not necessarily in that order -- and I get to write it all down and share it with the world thanks to the Wonderful World Wide Web!
