Shadow Sisters

Shadow Sisters at the Grand Canyon
My sister and I did a ten day tour in October of national parks and federal lands along the southern edge of the Colorado Plateau. Usually we set up the tripod and do a photo of us in the we were here mode but this time we chanced in day one on the Shadow Sisters. They went everywhere with us.

Shadow Sisters

Me and my sister
When young she was my shadow
Baby sister following me
Everywhere.

Me and my shadow
We both grew up
Now our shadows play together
Everywhere.

So thankful
For my sister
And the shadows we cast
In each other's life.

Just me and my sister
And our shadows
At play in the western sun
Thankfully together.
