April 16th – Night and Day

That fine glowing line on the horizon

Breaks day from night as morning

Spills into dawn.

Subtle at first then bursts into invitation

To awaken a new day

Separated from another night.

Shadows of the night become day’s shade

Where we seek cool comfort from

The heat of the afternoon.

Long silhouettes lay flat, shifting, shortening,

Widening, then merging

With one next as day grows slight

And welcomes sun down.

That indigo line merging day and night

Seems to fuse the two in a final kiss

Before fading into sweet dreams at last light.

The sand on Waipu’ilani Beach surrenders to your

Touch, hugging another curvilinear shape in repose.

The 6:05pm HST setting sun is a thumb width away from

The line of the horizon, clear of photo encumbrances save the

Translucent outline of three jolly clouds, waiting to embrace

Their leader for a job well done. Your gaze is as steady as the incoming

Tide, flush with languid ripples, gathering in a foamy reunion at the shoreline

Ten feet from your toes. You lift an adult sippy cup to the salt air and

Toast Wednesday in paradise and drink, quench. The fiery orb

Tucks below the shadow of the Pacific. A conch moans goodbye to

The day. You stand,…

Thanks Linda. I appreciate your feedback!


Night and Day

Black as pitch; dotted by lights

Nocturnal creatures explore;

Day begins to soar

Warm sun killing the night

Barking at strangers passing by

Anxious to go for a run;

Lying out in the sun

Playing with yarn is the life

Plants in bloom

Skin browned like toast;

Snow falls coast to coast

Icy roads imposing doom

Corona begins, changes our lives

World comes to a standstill;

Pandemic runs rampant still

Hope comes as vaccine arrives

Much is the same

But 2020 and 2021 are like night and day
