When I read this poem,I remembered the story of Peter Pan. Peter lost his shadow and Wendy sewed it to him. When I was a kid, I wondered why Peter was so frightened just about losing a shadow. Now I think yes,I must remember my darkness sometimes.

Interesting and mysterious write..It's true that we have the darkness that would overtake us if we did not let the Holy Spirit be in control..Whichever light we feed the most controls us..Sara

I like this poem, very much, but may, I suggest that it is a Senryu, as a Haiku is of nature and Senryu is of human conditions, however, I think it is just wonderful, and rated it a 7... Constance
