on my shadow

humourless laggard
drab silent doppelgänger
darkens each doorstep

n.b. Prompted by NaPoWrIMo 2022 Day Eight prompt, this senryū describes my alter-ego,

I hope that I have this the right way round.

on light

street, car, lamp, moon, star
fox turns grey, trots down alley
barks, cuts through shadow

Ghost

Aegean blue
or is it green
clear to the seabed
shadow so sharp
it cut me out
cast me in stone
anchored me
and here I am still
waiting for you
to dive in too

what time was it when

Sun projected pine shadows

on warm warehouse bricks
