threw a catfish on the grill
and dogs began to bark ….
gosh darn rooster woke up
even though it was only midnight
as moonlight grew brighter,
practically shining among shadows
until somebody opened the window
while everything got lighter
did you actually see that coming
or is sunrise nothing more than a mere illusion ?
still think there was some sort of collusion
every time the sun rises,
it is planet Earths birthday
on December 25th
horizons shine even merrier,
a legendary lighthouse still moving
along the way ….
in the quiet of darkness
a night owl reflects back
upon yesterdays occurrences ….
there is still light there
when the moon shows its face
so everything at least seems to be in place
when the grand fireball
finally and thankfully emerges
the time for action begins,
and by the way,
sometimes there is quite a bit of action
going on within this transitional phase ….
