Perhaps we,
I mean to say you
everyone, I said
Perhaps we read the shadows wrong
the shadowy we
everyone from the shadows
in the shadows
were wrong, forever
circling the shadows
circling the wrongs
circling the we

for the dverse prompt of 9/7/21: derivatives. Using Sanaa Rivi’s line “Perhaps we are reading the shadows wrong; forever cannot draw a circle.” from Winter Moon ~ Part Three: Petals of the Sun

  1. Whoaaaaa 😀 this is absolutely phenomenal, Xan! 💝💝 You have added so much depth to the quote here .. my hat is off! Thank you so so much for writing to the prompt. A true gem!
