day and night

Posted on July 20, 2014


day and night

Sunlight melts the darkness away

…then night envelopes its light

each trying to displace the other

but none can claim both sides

the waves cover the shore, a while

…retreating back with their tides

to plunge to the depths below

or soar above, taking flight…

first longing for the day to break

soon after, hungering for night
