A yellow aura shines from above-

yet it illuminates only a small shadow.

 

What life lurks above?

through layers of glass,

and lonely stone walls.

 

A small figure glares-

only to find darkness

alongside the shivering trees,

the moaning walkway,

and the sleepless shadow-

that only wonders

What is awake?
