Shadowy Pursuits
larrylark

Something moved beyond me.
 1
On its own it flowed, while blending with the floor.
 2
Cloned yet unfettered, seemed set in stone,
 3
while remaining shaded deep grey.
 4
 
 
It stayed out to play, darkened paving stones
 5
as the sun went in.
 6
Still it beckoned, I followed, shadowing every move.
 7
 
 
It danced ahead, left me marooned,
 8
way behind and out of tune,
 9
Disappeared inside a privet hedge,
 10
balanced on a window ledge.
 11
Waved goodbye and away it went.
