Poem looks for Meaning in Reflection and Shadow

Marc Latham’s latest Folding Mirror poem uses reflection and shadow to reflect on shades of the unknown. ¬†And here it is:

As each second of the present passes…
standing facing the sun
not under or above
reflection rolling in reservoir
a vision of future or past
is there clarity amongst ripples
on the surface of the deep
past distorted ahead, future hidden behind
look both ways to seek truth
turn around for another angle
I stretch nearly to the horizon
shadow sinks just short
no heaven or hell
blank image of unknown
