Creating connections through the arts and across cultures

“Shadow Griping,” by Daniel Holland


Why do we gripe, comparing shadows?
The shadow is past.
Why choose to live in a shadow?
I want to tan with the richness of sunlight.

  1. There is a lot of philosophy in these few lines. Yes, griping, comparing the shadows of the past. They do dog us, don't they? I enjoy the image of you tanning in the richness of today's sunlight.

  2. As a professional griper, I take offense at the notion of needing a sun burn. You, on the other hand, get to tan! "Unfair!" she griped.
