MID NIGHT
©by Alfreda Williamson, January 1, 2004

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,	
begins,
 . . . in the dark of night.

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