Only At Noon

Only at noon, they say,
you can flee from your shadow
when the sun is at its brightest
right above your head.
At all other times it is
either at your back,
like a nightmare from your past,
or right in your front,
like a sweet dream of your future.

But at the time of noon
with no past to nag
or any hope to delude
you are just present
in the world stilled to peace
in the sun at its best.
