Falling Asleep

Darkness falling
Drawing in
Out of the twilight
Of an old night

Tarnished splotches
Languish on the land
Stripping it
And making it cold.

Dead and all alike
Drifting away from their activity
To the boring eventualities
Of this final nothingness.

Awakening

Bright sun
Bursting forth
Into the dawn
Of a brand new day

Golden rays
Streak across the sky
Blanketing the land
With newfound warmth

Manifold lifeforms
Arise from their slumber
To the infinite possibilities
Of this grand awakening
