Shadow: A silent companion, always

This Haiku is about shadow as a silent and non-complaining companion. And it is always faithful and sticking around wherever Teh C. H. (guest photographer) goes! The face mask in the shadow marks the lingering pandemic in the background! Teh cycles in marathon, triathlon and half iron-man.

As surely as a shadow in broad day light, as certainly as success with determined might! – TPTan
