LIGHT OF DAY

For Carry On Tuesday
In the day’s last light
And NaiSaiKu Challenge?
And The American Sandwich
And Monday Poetry Train Revisited


NaiSaiKu

In the day’s last light
Final chance to see the sun
IT’S NOW OR NEVER
Final chance to see the sun
In the last day’s light


AMERICAN SANDWICH


In the early morning’s first light, sleepy eyes welcome the rising sun.


In the afternoon sunlight of a perfect summer day, children swim.

In the day’s last light, we watch in awe as the setting sun pays homage.
