2020-12-04 – The Crack of Dawn

when each day
begins at
night,

it makes for prolonged
and welcome
stretches
of calm

before the
waking world

joins in, before
all freshly
risen

litter the
room

once still
with silence,

my heart caged by
self-reliance,

when each day
begins at
night,

i wince at each
splash of
light,

and at each smile
whiter than
mine.

..and that crack of dusk is wake up call for a few of us.
