The night is hungry,
devouring candles like candy,
and trying to snuff out the light
like the last drag on a cigarette.

People huddle up tight,
with layer upon layer of protection
against the cold left in the wake
of their dearly departed sun.

But just when things seem at their worst,
a curiosity occurs –
the shadows, sated at last,
make way for lengthening days.

And beyond the departing darkness
waits a world blooming in the light.
