Shadow Poem-lets

I am content
In the shadow of your love
For your thought in mine
Fits like a glove

***

A shadow may lead
Or follow behind
But it never strays from
The discourse of the mind

***

A shadow sprawled towards the west
Means dawn is crawling from its nest
A shadow lengthened to the east
Means soon another day has ceased

***

A shadow is merely an echo
Of hard matter existence
When your shadow touches mine
I offer no resistance

***

Today the north wind
Jeers and laughs
Tussling tree-shadows
On the grass

***

You and I
Make beautiful shadows
Together
