Sunshine and Shadow

a contrast in costume,
they walk in shadow.

shade is all around
on such a sunny day.

its hard to decide,
where the edges are,
with the sun so bright,

and the shadows not 
quite midnight dark.


white plastered 
buildings rise up 
from unimaginably clean 
mikonos streets,

as tourists stroll
purposelessly by.

the sky is always
so important;

there must be
a little detail there,
if possible.


people in shadow,
so hard to see,
with pure whitewalls,
the sky about right.

but they are incidental,
in a place with ancient 
stories, long forgotten.


carve your 
stories in stone, 
then you'll be 
all alone, 
and nobody 
will believe 
you anyways.

but those white 
city walls,
before they all fall,
suggest sweet stories
we can't understand.


a contrast in costume,
they walk in shadow.

shade is all around
on such a sunny day.

its hard to decide,
where the edges are,
with the sun so bright,

and the shadows not 
quite midnight dark.
