Each day the sun draws the curtain and brings the shade.
The clouds roll back until they are wanted again.
The sky deepens.
It’s the daylight that taunts us.
Night is calm.
Night is a waterfall of sureness.
But day always breaks and we always wake to our unknowing minds.
We always greet our unknowing face in the mirror and move our unknowing limbs out the door.
We can’t escape the daylight.
We can’t forget that time is going going going and we have an endless array of puzzles to solve and ways to evolve.
The sun always sets, even if you think it’s only 2pm but it’s really 9.
Even if you think you’ve only lived a little but you’ve lived a lot.
You forget, but the sun remembers.
The sun knows what time it departs.
Every hour it sends us a reminder.
Daylight is breaking;
Night is coming.
But like fools we romanticize the night and let the day run out of sight
Like fools we let the day go right before our very eyes.
