Only a shadow—a sometimes haiku

Photo of NZ mountain cabbage tree with large shadow
Shadow of a creature like a hare beside a pole
A remarkable shadow of who knows what?

Sometimes only a shadow

of the thing

Glimpse the glory of recycling

A Toi or New Zealand mountain cabbage tree, flaunting its glorious shadow
