Haiku: Twilight

All you vampire fans, move along. The poets at One Single Impression are claiming the word as their own this week. Don't forget to see how other non-bloodsuckers envision twilight.

As for me, I can only offer this:


Sudden reversal
of what is and what is not.
Shadows gain control.

Awaiting Twilight
It's a beautiful time of the day. Or do I mean it's a beautiful time of the night? No matter, there is beauty all around as the gradual darkening sky seemingly thuds into night all at once. I took this photo last summer at Uncle Ken's and Aunt Margaret's gorgeous place in Wales. Looking at the photo whisks me back there, to a time when Ken could still be found, before his twilight came.

Day becomes night and is no longer. Life becomes death and is no longer. The inbetween time is both precious and confusing.
I am sorry about your uncle Ken but I am glad that you got to see him last year.
