Shorter Days

Dark drops early from the sky
these December days,
Equal opportunity perhaps
for more distant stars,
a chance for far off sparkle
to touch the eye,
reward for the poet’s constant
stretching
to claim a more perfect vision.
Not just the clock and calendar
are considerations
There’s the realization
that winter beckons.
