A Blue Black Calling

Yellows fade to coral
to pale blue to grey
eventually to the
blue black twilight
that signals a quieting
a beguiling darkness
a pull to rest
But lights wink on
pots and pans clatter
and we reclaim our place
eluding the night
We resist with profession 
and pleasures
pages and passions
’til the undertow 
of blackness can be
defeated no more 
and we relinquish our
undertakings to the 
emptying day
