Day moves forward
Into the next moment
Into the sunlight
Or rain cloud
as the clock ticks

Day moves forward
Into the morning
Into the hours of golden hue
Or grey mist
as the earth spins

Day moves forward
Into the afternoon
Into the warm haze
Or chilly fog
as the moon orbits

Day moves forward
Into the evening
Into the sunset
Or darker grey
as stars stretch

Day moves forward
Into midnight
Into the mix of blue
and deeper blue
as day moves to day
