Day Is Longer Than The Night


THE DAY IS LONGER THAN THE NIGHT
©By AlFreda Williamson, January 1, 2004

The day is not the sun rise,

Its not the dawn,

Peeping,
into the bedroom
into the kitchen
into the bathroom
the hallways

telling us,
get up/get moving/get going!

It’s not the noon day sun,
Beating down on us,
Hot,
Sticky,
Bright,

Comforting,
Sometimes.

It is not the sunset,
Shining brilliantly
Into our eyes as we drive,
Bringing down the day curtain,
Punctuating the end of our day

It is not the lingering evening light,
Those traces of skylight,
The streaks of color atop the trees,
The painted pictures in the sky.

NO . . .

It’s from mid night
To midnight.

Day is longer
