today daylight

today daylight
smaller than hope

(that bitch knows
we have ahead of us
a season of ice
short days

blue shadows

angled light

but I’ll gladly add
the seconds to
an appreciable difference)

time is like that
a change so subtle
never violent

though it is a thing
that kills.

About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?

  1. Susan, the best of the Season to you and yours. Take care my friend. 🙂

  2. Nice invocation of the solstice. Good little twist at the end, took me by surprise. The parentheses remind me of Whitman, he often used asides to great effect as well. Good work.
