Silhouettes

silhouettes

Moving stealthily beside me
My silhouette, but half of me
Reflecting glances cast upon me
This is all the other sees

But just one side of me is showing
Being that of left or right
Creating incomplete conclusions
The rest of me beyond their sight

If I were to change position
Face the other way per se
Would they gain a new perspective
Would more of me that side betray

Each in itself creates a picture
With many features indiscreet
Only when both seen together
Is who I really am complete

About oldmainer

I am retired and live in southern Maine with my wife and two dogs of questionable origin. I created this blog as an outlet for my occasional opinions and random observations since my wife is tired of hearing them and, after 50 some odd years, probably with good reason. I appreciate your checking me out and hope that you find something that will encourage a return visit. Thanks for stopping by.
