light is my mother,
matter is my father,
when they mingle their essences they create shadow children,
brothers and sisters for me to chase around the neighborhood
to try and capture in a box.
we play "hide and go seek",
and "red rover red rover send Marianne over",
then "ring around the rosey"...
if it wasn't like a game,
the results when i "capture your flag"
would look like stock photographs in a catalog.
playing with you, ghost children of shadow and form,
makes me a child again and i see the world anew
every time i look through my camera's eye...
