#SOL17 Day 8: Hello, Daylight



Taking the dog out
in the early morning,
there used to be black,
but now -
daylight.

Getting in the car
to drive to school,
there used to be darkness,
but now -
daylight.

It is now possible
to tell morning from night,
as the world awakens,
now
daylight.

As the day turns
to afternoon;
the sun shines bright,
celebrate
daylight!

Driving home
at the end of the day,
impossible to believe,
still
daylight.

Evening now brings
time to walk,
time to get outside,
the joy of
daylight.

After a winter
of unending darkness,
my heart sings.
Thank you,
daylight.

  3. I have been looking for you on Slice! So many names and I am guessing you are a night slicer! I was just thinking about the light at the end of the day today. I noticed it was bright sun as I arrived home and took a moment to just soak it in. Lovely poem -- I love this stanza
    Evening now brings
