Light and Shadows dedicated to a friend

Even a sunny day

has shadows

that fill the corners

of the way

waiting to be noticed,

the more

sun

there may be

the greater the shadows

the happier you are

the greater the sadness

the wisdom

of

Wu-way has forever

been

know that the shadows

are a part of the day

if you

concentrate on shadows

light hides its face

the shadows

will grow

stealing your

joy

and you’ll

think the illusion

is the road.

Forget then

your troubles

for they are not yours

unless

you adopt them

and give them your name

look to the sunlight

and you’ll

understand

that

the moon in the pond

is

not real.
