    we’re a couple hours past our solstice sunset
    and tucked into the delicate balance of
    light and dark that make our old house hum
    my heart sings along with all it remembers

    one of our porch lights appears to have given
    up and left the lighting to the other one
    while we carry on behind their lopsided wink
    among alternating rooms of bright and dim

    so this is life slipping between sunshine and
    shadows turning off lights to welcome the dawn
    dancing with shadows we know all too well
    and reaching to find each other in the dark

    once again night settles in like an old friend
    as the candle of another day flickers out
    the house is still humming as is my heart
    I need you in the dimming of the day

      Oh, yes, PLEASE. A little Milton poetry and a little Bonnie Raitt in the very same post. Thank you.
