The Beginning of Something Grand

Do you remember
when we used to find
shadows on flower petals

when the sun was shining?
And how we used to stand
beneath those trees

watching shadows on the backs
of sun-lit leaves? It was like
a puppet show.

We'd wonder, what happened
to the shadows when the sun

We were only ten. But even then
I knew that searching
among the flowers

or on the backs of fluttering leaves
was the beginning of something grand.
Throughout the years we've walked

through many a sun-lit shadow
hand in hand
to the very moment of now...
