Bidirectional Exchange

Daybreak is a special time, but so is nightfall.
Both allow us to peer into the universe from
different angles, watching time unfold like
a flower blossom, unveiling secrets made visible
only to those who expend the energy to see them.

If something or someone is on the other side of daybreak
and nightfall, I wonder whether they, peering into
the secrets unveiled by unfolding time, see us and the
secrets we unwittingly share by revealing our curiosity
and opening ourselves to the unknown?

  1. “Revolving trickery.” Indeed. But such wonderful trickery!

  2. At daybreak and nightfall, I think of people on the other side of the planet who are watching nightfall and daybreak. Their day my night; their night my day. Ah earth and sun, such revolving trickery.

    I like this. My two favourite times of the day, too.
