 Beyond Our Control

Beneath the surface of the night

the daylight is hiding.

I saw it disappear

as the sun sank 


the straight line of the horizon.

It’s still there somewhere,

hiding here 

but showing itself

shining roundly 

somewhere else

in a different place,

a different hemisphere.

That’s how it works

this day and night business

that’s in control,

that tells the flowers 

when to close up their petals

and the animals to sleep

and dream.

Every day

it happens,

a shining




beyond our control.
