Dark Doings

You and your shadow had a pleasant evening. You repotted your plants and did the laundry and wrote to your congress critter and washed the walls and re-shingled the roof and rescued a kitten from a tree and worked on your mosaic of a purple turtle and ate a healthy dinner and watched the sun set and talked to the moles building tunnels under your garden and listened to your neighbors fighting and put the trash can out for the garbage collectors who will arrive early tomorrow morning. Then you told your shadow to please please please get some sleep.

Nice use of polysyndeton.

Here I live in sunny Hawaii and I haven't thought about my shadow for years. Thanks for reminding me of my friend who has stuck with to?) me all these years. Even when I lived in Oregon and didn't get to see him much from September through March.
