Silhouettes and Mystery

when we stare
      up at the sky,

tilting heads back
   so we can focus

      our minds on
something above


      the birds fly
where we can't

blocking light,


   so we focus
on light and 
      on shade

   a bird's shadow
rarely touches us.

      we think that 
we deserve more.

and i wonder 
      what will 
become of us,

if we are destined 
   to die out.


   i expect i won't 
      be here 
when it happens. 

   but i don't like 
   the idea much.


does this 
shadow touch us?
