LXXXIII-24 An Early Night

Postby hawkseye » Sun Jan 21, 2018 10:17 pm

An Early Night

Sun hid behind a façade
of gray today, while leaving
nature's fridge open.

Even indoors, warmed by artificial
heat, my way guided by LED lights,
I donned an extra layer for comfort,

added a winter jacket and gloves
for my outdoor excursion,
shorter than on sunny days.

Shadows stole afternoon's light
before night's usual arrival,
kitchen clock out of sync
with the darkness outside,

and I wonder if that sun left
work early or slept on behind
night's hasty curtain of black?

This is how I felt a few days ago when I couldn't warm up and the temp dipped to 17. But it was sunny and 65 today. Spring in winter. And I feel wonderful!

i think this is what has been ailing me - everything out of sync.

stayed up late last night - "blade runner 2049" - three hour movie, didn't get to bed until 8 o'clock

I liked the image of the sun sleeping late.
