The raft moves
slowly, gently,
over the still waters;

The man on it does not move.

He remains rooted,
to his past, a shadow
he forgot to leave behind.

  1. A wonderful imagery. Although the raft moves, the man moves not relative to the raft and he thinks he doesn’t move at all. You capture poignant thoughts very well…

  2. Superb.This is beautiful, raft moving over STILL waters,Still waters a metaphor for flowing time,but the next few lines suspect the flow of time as past in part of the present.This is just beautiful.
