At end of day...

twilight comes
daylight fades
slowly
creeping
across the landscape
in an ever flowing
unfolding wave
undulating
over each corrugation
navigating undulations
rivers and banks
buildings and streets
never stopping
pausing to think
but unrelenting
no turning back
the night is near and day almost gone
stars begin to show
glowing and finding their place
where they can be the centre of attention
of every star gazer’s eyes turned upward
to the night sky

over the millenia they have been the source
the finder and pointer of the way
for astrologers and astronomers
navigators, seafarers
travellers and trekkers
those once lost were found
and thanked their lucky stars

but their time is not quite here
so they wait impatiently as
twilight takes her time
makes the most of moving as she pleases
without rushing
this is her time and it nears its end
this inbetween moment
at end of day.
