after dark, before light- after light-before dark

after dark, before light

prayers
supplications
loaded
wings
soared

fluttered
gently tapping
dark browed
sky with hope
to rent

unmoved
thunder bully
glowered
stonily..
wings continued

prayers rose
fell in waves
resting on feathers
hoping to dent
peck holes

persistence
paid off
chinks carved
colander sky
light escaped

after dark, before light
sun and sky
night and day
shadow light protagonists
ever feint parry
**


After light before dark

Pregnant    pause
Spent forces on    second wind
New forces rushing     in  sudden coup
Light shadow on      hide and seek mode

Sun vanishing in        Houdini horizon’s sleeve
Sky displaying array of  rosy hues, gashes blue
Stars diffident,       twinkle shyly

Birds homing after   day’s forage
Commuters disgorged by       buses, trains

Mentally on own    trains of thought
Streets, porch lights shine on timed glow

Panhandlers pickup    box perches

Readying to retire in    makeshift homes

News’ “Good Evening”      gives bad news first

Channel switching,     families settle down
