Shadows

Sunlight flits between the fenceposts and darts across the sidewalk, leaving a trail of shadows in its wake.  As the twilight looms closer and closer, the shadows take on forms of their own.  Twisting and growing with the setting sun, they transform into monsters.  Creatures of the night, they peel themselves off of the sidewalk and begin their evening rounds.  They roam the streets, jumping in front of children or hiding behind trees.  They flow effortlessly from shape to shape as they mimic those of the ones around them.  As the sun dips below the horizon and the last rays fade into an inky black, the shadows blend into the night.  No longer constrained by light, they rejoice in the darkness and celebrate until sunrise.
