The Shift

At night, creatures of the night blindly roam the earth,

while creatures of light sleep.

During daylight, time of the Sun,

the earth belongs to creatures of the light alone.

Creatures of the night must hide

and find their suited dark environment underground

for sleep.

However,

At dawn, for few moments,

night creatures still linger while first rays break the darkness

to indigo light

the two have a chance to acknowledge each other,

to mingle, few moments,

yet not always in the most amiable terms,

some dispute ownership of these moments

others request gentle transformation …


To those who don’t remember the rhythm of day and night

these few moments may seem apocalyptic confusion.
