shadow

Jefferson Park - Spring

Like me it is small,
but there is sunlight moving slowly,
and shadows touching flowers,
and winds shifting the spray from a fountain,
symbolic that water may flow upward
when pushed by imagination
toying with the mechanical.
I sit on a bench,
like Adam enjoying nature
before the advent of clothes.
