Once upon a time there was an Ant.
And towards the horizon it did stroll.
It never felt the path but simply walked,
blissfully oblivious of the casting shadow.
The Ant did walk,
and the shadow waited.
Now both in silent murmurs talked…..all the while Horizon watched.
Ant cried: “Eeeeee”
Shadow welcomed: “Oooooo”
Ant gasped: “Eeeeeeee”
Shadow smiled: “Oooooooo”
Ant smirked: “Eeeeeeeeeeeee”
Shadow warned : “Ooooooooooooo”
The forest stilled. The mountains slept. The clouds softly peered. The rivers leapt.
Horizon rose and spoke to Ant: “Why must you walk the path in daze, when truths are found right under your nose?”
And now the Ant did wonder why….and saw the shadow that it cast….
Alas, it saw the truer path….
