Midnight is the time of cats.

It creeps in quietly.

I should be sleeping

But this time,

This quiet and soft time of peace

Is my favorite of the day.

I don’t like to waste this middle of the night,

Though I know I have to wake early

And I’ll regret missed sleep

When the sun is in the sky.


This moment of quiet,

Of solitude,

This time without demand

Sings quietly to me.

“Welcome to midnight “.

  1. Thanks for the comment. 6:30 is as early as I’m willing to rise so usually get at least six and a half hours of sleep. Maybe you can find your midnight at other times.
