Shadow and Light

"We are but dust and shadow."

We rode our bikes this afternoon because the day was sunny and bright.
When we ride, we always head toward the river first
then we always get off our bikes and lean over the railing
to look for raccoon foot prints or sandcrabs or nesting geese or waterbirds.

The tide was out, so there was only a sunlit puddle of clear water,
but it was teeming with hundreds of minnows.
And just for fun,
we took turns making shadows over the water.
Every pass of our hands or arms caused the minnows to dart and scatter.
Dust, shadow, and a little mischief.
