24 hours

(In four haiku)

the sky scraped thin, 
whiteness showing through.  
these margarine days 

noontime, an upright world,
shadows trimmed to footfall
light’s mighty shears.

outstretched fingers 
so far, the eastern horizon
sun’s begonia yawn

I wind open the window;
between curtains a fridge-blue glow
this leak of moon

Written for Miz Quickly’s Dec 13 prompt “Light”
