#verselove - 20: Twilight

For the month of April, I am participating in 30 days of #verselove poetry writing with Dr. Sarah J. Donovan's Ethical ELA

Today's poetry inspiration was to write a duality poem, and this prompt, like yesterday's, was offered by three preservice teachers from Oklahoma State University: Bailey Davenport, Brooke Merrick, and Ryan Paul. (I love how this writing community welcomes all educators, no matter where we are in our career!)

I had fun with this prompt!


Is there a 
truer delight
than the
light and dark
of twilight?
To wait for night 
with no lamplight,
the darkness
enter slowly, slightly,
slyly darkening, 
is enlightening.
The light grows
darker, darker, 
darker still, as
daylight takes flight.
Suddenly, all is
Here, when light is 
at its darkest,
the moon alights.
There is no
truer delight
than the
light and dark
of twilight.
