I stir before night gives way,
while dark’s steely grip keeps
closed my thick, heavy drapes.
Under a welcoming duvet
I wait till brightness seeps
through a chink forming shapes
I know, then I join the day.

[Inspired by National Poetry Day’s theme of “light” and written on the he 8th )October and published on]
