While I brood

Shadows are playing

Outside the window

Dancing merrily

With the wind.

A tiny bird

Flits around

Pauses

Only to fly again.

A thumping sound

From the neighbor above

Tells me

I am not alone.

The Television’s on

And cares for none

Flashing images

At me.

I stare at it

Preoccupied

Before I turn

To look at the shadows

Again.
