“Nighthawks,” 1942 by Edward Hopper

Nighthawks

This woman that I met an hour ago,
Has hair bright red, bright like a flame at dusk,
Reminding me how Mother’s hair will glow
And how her hands and face can smell like musk;

This woman, an ice queen, desires a man,
Her pores cry out for warm togetherness,
And I could take her to my room–“That fan,
Bud, moans like a coyote in distress,

This coffee’s cold, I need a drop or two,
She needs a warm-up too” . . . like Mother, she
Won’t say what she wants, makes you hunt for clues,
She’ll drive you crazy over cups of tea.

That other man has given her the eye.
I must be honest with myself, admit
I always treat a woman dignified
And I’ll go home tomorrow and I’ll sit

Beside the fire while Mother talks and knits,
And Sammy licks my hand and sleepy Patch
Curls in my lap . . . “These bills will cover this . . .
I’m sorry, but I have a train to catch.”

I wrote some books

To grow your mind;

Read one or two—

It’s not a grind.

~Day Williams

Most books are available on amazon.com.

Cheer up.

 

Go read a book:

You’ll benefit;

You’ll smile to read

Some grit and wit.

~Day

I’ve rendered the Holy Bible in blank verse.  All the books are on Kindle. I’ve written books of poetry, a children’s story, compiled a law book, and compiled books of quotations. The royalties go directly to my local church, The Bridge Church, in Carson City, Nevada.

 

 

 

 

Besides my books on amazon and kindle, I have art and photographs for sale at fineartamerica.com and zazzle.com/daysrays, and on display on flickr.

April 14: “In the beginning God” by Day Williams

 

The star-forming region NGC 3603 – seen here in the latest Hubble Space Telescope image – contains one of the most impressive massive young star clusters in the Milky Way. Bathed in gas and dust the cluster formed in a huge rush of star formation thought to have occurred around a million years ago. The hot blue stars at the core are responsible for carving out a huge cavity in the gas seen to the right of the star cluster in NGC 3603’s centre.
