Who are these words

‘Red Shade People’ – yamabuki

If a little dreaming
Is dangerous,
The cure for it
Is not to dream less
But to dream more,
To dream all the time.
– Marcel Proust
(preface)
Jealous of your warmth,
November skies,
So cold and dark,
Growls thunder
In the distance
(dream)
Who are these words
What is their name
Would you know them
If you passed them
In the street
(Shadows)
They have names
Like Clock and Sun
Moon and Sharp
Culture and Print
Yet we ignore them
When they wink at us
(moonlight)
This is the way of the world
We are sure to be this way
Even when we are vacationing
Away from our normal lives
When we just  want to be tourists
