The Shadow

Michael Peach

(In response to "The Hollow Men")
Between ideal
And actuality
Between potential
And fulfilment
Between insight
And expression
Between inspiration
And creation
Between genius
And integrity
Between revelation
And response
Falls the shadow –
The alter ego archetype –
Claiming its place in the sun
Demanding its sacred due
Providing the soul with choice.
