I

have

a little

shadow

that goes

in and out

with me.

What can be

the use

of it

is more

than

I

can see.

Some months ago

The word

Shadow

appeared

in my awareness.

Immediately,

the childhood ditty

sang in my mind.

Curious,

I googled it

and discovered

with surprise

that

Robert Louis Stevenson

wrote it.

As ditties sometimes do,

it kept ringing

in my mind.

So,

join me

as I begin to explore

with reflection

and curiosity

what

me and my shadow

begin

to reveal.

What will

I learn

that has not been

apparent

in bright light

of living.
