The day softens
Into the twinkling of lights,
Shades are drawn,
The lucky enjoy a meal,
The fortunate turn down beds,
The lonely wander inky streets,
The lost lie in corners,
Hide in alleys,
Gather over fires,
Hoping for a meal or a bed,
A night of peace,
Hours of oblivion,
Unconscious memories
Of twinkling lights
As days soften.

I was always a writer but lived in a bookkeeper’s body before I found Medium and broke free — well, almost. Working to work less and write more.
