The Dark Of The Night

I told the old man
I didn't understand
his porch light
being on all day

A little sixty watt light
isn't that bright
to the light of the day

And at best
even at night
it has just enough light
to be seen a block away

So he turned out the light
and its dark out at night
since the old man
moved away


  1. oh how sad this is :) and how well you have written expressed this loss of light ... the little things that we feel are big and seem to matter to us sometimes aren't so big in the end I truly enjoyed reading your poem and All it had to say to us who read thankYou for sharing with the beez ;)

  2. So lovely and so sad...a beautiful write.
