The light, once more

We count backwards, 
with glitter on our lids 
the amount of times we have been good

we count backwards, 
with a sun that half set down 
the effect of sunlight on the night 

we count backwards, 
with dignity
wait for it as it approaches 

the light makes small spaces 
roomier, makes the heart wilder 
makes way for the festive season approaching.
