Dawn to Dusk

 As the sun rises, we sweep the yard.  Dust lifts into the sky attempting to hold up a full moon's departure.

As the sun rises, we sweep the yard.  Dust lifts into the sky attempting to hold up a full moon's departure.

 

 

Night shifts to dawn,

Silence into creation.

 

 

The work of yesterday

Fostered beautiful sleep.

 

 

Eyes crusted over,

We break the settlement of time.

 

 

Just as the dust settles,

It is swept afloat again.

 

 

Hopes of yesterday, and dreams of tomorrow

Mimic this early morning haze.

 

 

Sun over the horizon,

The air is cleared.

 

 

Only by the wind, and only by our thoughts

Does the suffocation return.

 

 

We repeat.
