Staying up late

DSC_2421

If it was summer

The dawn would be arriving,

If it was autumn

The sun would be up in a while

But winter fails the light

Sun stays abed

Darkness rules

And my mind

In need of peace

Stays awake

And I stay with it

Up late

Before it’s early. Tired

Dozing in a warm glow

of remembered sunsets.
