Dark half entities

Day or night, reach across the land.

Breaking away from their hosts

Elongated, misshapen forms

Forests, great monuments.

We too have our own half-life

Following where we go

Bending its shape to the landscape

Stretching along walls, leading the way

Searching along the River Thames

Playing with the water

Dancing with the light

Teasing, find me, touch me.

I have watched the shadows

Shrink back into themselves

As if frightened by some stranger form

They return to their host.

The land around is bright again

Lit by the sun.

When the time is right

Our own earth reaches into space

Like a dark searchlight.

I wait, I hold my breath

I watch pac-man eat the moon

Until the dark shadow is complete…
