Shadow – A drabble by hoverFrog

The shadow looked up at the man and felt pity.  “So solid, he’s barely able to change his shape at all.”

The shadow looked up at the man and felt jealousy.  “He can stand in the light and it doesn’t hurt  him.  I’m trapped in his wake.  I’m forced to leap about to where he blocks the light.”

The shadow looked up at the man and felt love.  “He protects me from the light.”

At night the shadow whispered to other shadows and told them of its discoveries.  The shadow of the Earth thought them such small and foolish creatures.
