Dawn

One day, that is all dawn
wake to light seeping through lace
and sleep to light saturated music

One day of cold darkness
wake to close black atmosphere
sleep to wavering night-song

Two days that are opposites
where the sun-pendulum turns
and reflects halogen the other way

Two days book-end the year of light
and sleep soundly for another birthday
all-night and all-day are immortal


One Single Impression

You are correct Everyday Goddess. I think the idea of losing and gaining light is a good one, even if its not truly what is happening ;)
