Solar Dimensions

A picture of Jack
with the sea to his back,
his shadow falling
to the water
poses the question.
If it’s a Florida evening
which ocean is it
behind Jack?

To the west the Gulf of Mexico,
to the east Atlantic.
In what direction
does Jackie stand
as he bids farewell
to the sun?
And his shadow
joins the dimension
of the night?

The shadow knows!
