Day Break

Day cracks the horizon here-

A hard fought battle, trailing the tattered remains of night

In fading strands of pink, of purple, of blue so thick the sky chokes with it.

Elsewhere, the dark flips to light with little ceremony-

A pale and faded transition.

Here, the day fights for purchase,

For every hour of light before being swallowed

By the lengthening shadows of winter.

IMG_0293Any light in winter is a fierce and hard fought battle

I am as interested by the northern light shows as I am by the many stories behind them.


For more fierce -literal- lights, my fantasy novel, The Guests of Honor, is available here. Its sequel, With Honor Intact, can be found here.
