Poetry: “Progress”

On the progress of daylight as the days go by.

***~***~***~***

Progress

Behold the slow march
Of progress
Each day it grabs
Yet another sliver of daylight
Building slowly
Yet surely
Something greater every day
A minute here
Another there
Truly not much of a difference
Day to day
But in a week
Ah, then you marvel at the changes
Each sunrise welcomes
As it crawls
Later and later every passing week
While the night
Falls back
Into a far smaller dominion
Reduced
Each evening
To a smaller sliver
Of darkness
Shrinking
Until the day has reached its peak
