"Seagulls and Shadows " © James Rainsford
If my shadow had wings,
it could fly free of
the ancient bones
my feet must carry.
I walk on brittle toes
wishing I could ride
the wind of my youth.
Guess I should be glad
my deaf ears can’t hear this cane
tapping me closer to eternity.

we were blessed to have the photography of
James Rainsford as inspiration for our work.
I also linked my poem to Real Toads' Open Link Monday.
