   With head heavy, eyelids heavier, hand tightly gripping the handle of a pint mug of tea, by now half empty and barely warmer than its surroundings, I sit quietly in a daze, resisting with all my strength the urge to doze off, listening intently to the silence of the room around me, and the whispers in my mind.

   “If off to sleep you go,” say the hissing voices in the deep of the darkness, “then Day ends. And then YOU,” they add with creepy emphasis, and the implied wagging of a multitude of invisible but menacing, clawed and scaly index fingers, “and then YOU will have KILLED it!”

   And that thought, that awful, nagging thought that I might thus become The Murderer of Day keeps me awake at night, if only just, until Morning comes sneaking up on me to ensure with brutal certainty that there is no way back, and that Day must finally give up what’s left of its spark and die. But then at least I know that it is not I but instead Tomorrow that killed Day, and I am left to grieve in my innocence the tortured hours of sleep that never were, the collateral victims of The Battle of Night. Now, at last, I can close my eyes against the emerging light, to catch a few, hasty moments of rest before the cycle starts again.

* * *

And this is why I drink as much tea as I do (you might prefer coffee), to stay awake for as long as I can, drifting into more or less meaningless mental meanderings and philosophical hiccups, and occasionally end up writing silly nonsense like this.
The Murder of Day
From the drawer dungeon of notes that never made it to become more than just that, a bunch of notes in a drawer dungeon, but hey, they’re still © me.
Angel of Spring
The angel of spring,
tiny as he is,
slowly but tirelessly,
digging his way,
inch by inch,
out of what's left of winter.

It's been a long, cold wait.
Red Monday
Monday Morning Sleepy Sunrise Revealing the Red Eye of the East.
At a quarter to nine.

iPhone SE + Lightroom Mobile (RAW)
Advent Moon
Morning of the fifth, three days past full, seven minutes before eight, still well within the dark, but night's a-fadin', and we've a moon for a star.

Personal Quote: «Hey, I'm just human. What's your excuse?»
First journal entry since Dec 31 2007, and first visit back since April 11 this year. Though I usually have at least one camera with me wherever I go, and take pictures at every opportunity I can find, unfortunately I seldom find the time to sit down and do much with them lately.

Was it coincidence that I came back to find my message box bristling with precisely 1000 messages, or is that the max allowed by DevArt? I don't know, but it definitely means that I've a huge backlog to get on with.
