Mid night;
the middle;
the center;
halfway through.

the night,
and the day.

Isn’t it funny?
The new day begins at mid night,
	the middle of the night,
	in the midst of the night.

The new day begins at dark,
	in the dark.	
A new day, begins . . .
	in darkness,

A new beginning starts
	in  darkness,
	when we cannot see it,
	when we might not imagine it,
Cloaked in the darkness.

The light of day,	
 . . . in the dark of night.

The dawn of tomorrow’s day,
in the mid night.
	the darkness,
of yesterday’s day.

    Alfreda,, Stopping by to greet you and every other soup poet, with a special thank you comment, during this wonderful Thanksgiving season. Hope you do not mind the time I am taking to express my sincere appreciation for any support you have offered during the years, or time you have been here on the soup. I am deeply thankful and extend to you my best wishes for a happy and healthy Poetic Magical Thanksgiving Day. *Always & Forever, the Poet Destroyer; -*
