week 615 ~ seven minutes past midnight

seven minutes past midnight
incoming long-distance call
just turned off the bedside light
seven minutes past midnight
loud ring heart pounds fears ignite
unknown dangers could befall
seven minutes past midnight
incoming long-distance call

week 331 ~ madrugada breaks slowly as midnight

with 2 comments

me.331madrugada breaks slowly as midnight
crosses to dawn the invisible line
that’s passed before you notice shapes entwine
with colors as the world embracing light
surrenders to beauty morning returns
daily its changes hard to register
in sunrise colder today or later
details of no matter for hope relearns
what it needs to survive I’m learning too
redrawing my boundaries to rethink
time perched precariously on the brink
of sweeping across night’s horizon through
to what doesn’t exist yet where I’ll know
the seeds of change were planted long ago

[madrugada is the time after midnight and before dawn in Brazil and Argentina]
