Shades in the Water

We leaned over the railing on the Pont d’Avignon hoping, Narcissus like, to admire our reflections in the slowly passing Rhone.  Instead we looked down on two hazy grey shadows, shades, ghosts of the people we thought we were or wanted to be.  The social invisibility that comes with advancing years was written in the water.
