In the Gloaming
A Writer’s Book of Days (01/05) – Write About A Day Moon
Dusk is my favorite time of day. The finalization of a busy day, yet a continuation of possibilities into the night. Some people call it twilight or gloaming.
Sometimes you can’t tell when evening’s going to come. Evening often creeps upon you quickly, especially in the winter. The sun sets with barely a warning. It almost feels like an entire day has gone before your eyes. Have you wasted it? You certainly didn’t stop to enjoy it.
Some days I’ll spy a day moon high in a bright, blue sky. It’s almost like the dusk of the dusk, reminding us that an uncharted night, followed by a brand-new day, is not far behind.
Those evenings, I remember to watch the sun, once sharing the sky with the day moon, disappear slowly into the horizon. The moon silently reclaims the sky as its own, reminding me there’s so much more ahead.
