Between the Seen and the Shadows


Have you seen the breath going up and down? 
 Felt the beat pumping the blood and gives you momentum? 
Sometimes I think, Life's spooky tale hides in the shadows of notion. 

In the school I learned: Shadows enlarge against the slanting light;
And contracts in the virticle.

...Am I scared of light? 
That multiplies shadows?
Or am a shadow myself --
Expelled out of the star-lit day
Hiding from expansion and contraction,
Heaving up and down?

Am I a ghost in the black unseen heath,
Causing a motion beyond visibility? 
Am I real?
