Day 297, Dawn comes too early

Dawn bled through
The curtain cloth
A milky wash
Sulking, midnight walked away
Bored by his sleepy nocturnal friends
For a moment the world stands unguarded
Neither night nor day
My heavy eyes acknowledge
The changing of the guard
My heavy heart is torn
It welcomes this flux of dark and light
Issues out a prayer
In the silence of the early bird's waking
There is hope in this subtle breaking
That day's light will
Overcome the lingering
Shadow of sunset
