Day to Night

Somewhere in the world

it is the next day

traveling to Africa from DC

window seat and looking out

the daylight fades

I pass the point where day becomes night

or night becomes day

whichever way you are going

it is there

luminous fading fleeting moment

then a vast ocean of blackness

until the light settles again

on the housetops in Senegal
