Senryu’s: The day is too bright…

The day is too bright.
Basement-eyes weren’t meant for it,
only dusk and dawn…

And the black night-time,
which they only light with soft,
countless dimming lights.

If I sleep all day,
I’m awake for the night-time,
a quieter place.

The respectful nights
do not shout, or flash, or blind,
but treat with tender
those with which they coincide.
