The Flickering Hour

I’m settling in from the day,

leaning into my everything-

from-here chair, where I write,

draw, read, think…..I reflect

on the day, replay moments,

consider all that happened

from my 4am waking to

this slow ending, sun fading

on the horizon like pixie-dust,

the curtain across from me

haloed with the last amber

light like a beeswax candle

in the final flickers before

burning out, extinguishing

the last wakeful hour

into the twilight smoke

of dreams.
