Day and Night

Day and Night

Beneath the dark grey clouds
The brazen sun ignited
Shining its light on the earth
A sight to be delighted
 
A flock of starlings scattered
Like a carpet shaken with might 
A climactic end of day 
Exhausting into the night
 
Colors vivid and dramatic
A wave of madness in the sky
Spiked like a fever
Only the moon knows why
 
Waiting in the wings
to cool things down
She lays patiently in wait
Wearing the evening gown
 
Of silver and sparkle
Bright as evening light
The day is over
Here comes the night
