Evening Falls

evening falls and so do I
into sleep, early in the night
mother nature says “good night”
controls are remote, out in the sky

sonnets clear the worries now
today will turn into tomorrow
just about when my eyes may wiggle
my muse comes to me with a giggle

morning calls me up to write
I bid goodbye to this last night
for today, I will stay on task
another sweet evening is all I ask
