DARK DAY, BRIGHT NIGHT
(11/8/16)

the clouds
roll in

the sporadic rain
in and of itself
is bearable

the sun
blocked
throughout the
daylight hours
unforgivable

how dreary

at sunset
the sky
gets even darker

but then
the city lights
explode

reflecting
off the low
hanging veil
of weather

illuminating
the earth
with a gentle
glow

making
the evening
much more
of an event

the effect
is enjoyable

comforting

still
as we settle
into bed
later

we hope
for sunshine
in the morning

stars
the next
night

our direct
links
to the cosmos

reminding us
that there's more
to existence
than our moody
little planet
