    hardly four days have passed since
    we stopped trying to save daylight
    and let it sink all too quickly into
    autumn’s mid-afternoon sunsets

    dawn breaks; how can daylight
    be anything but a lost cause?
    then again, darkness falls and
    suffers the night in silence

    I am awake wresting an idea
    who refuses to become a poem
    it was yesterday when I started
    the longer night hasn’t helped

    when I am waked by the first chards
    of daylight against my window
    I will see these words and it will
    dawn on me what I wanted to say

    Peace,
    Milton

      Thanks for the words that ring so true for those of us who write.
