RDP Tuesday Prompt: Crepuscule

Clouds 25.10 (9)

Who crepuscles, no, it is not me
I leave it to science to do it all to see
Sometimes you get a red sky, Santa Claus is baking
Christmas puddings very fine, the reindeer then awakening
And there are the grey ones, a lid above our head
The crepuscle has then given up, resting on a cloud bed
The sun is going South at last, the moon is not so sure
It is dazzled by a glowing sky and fears for seeing more
Young lovers (and old) are arm in arm, embracing with a kiss
I am gazing through my camera, the beauty not to miss
And then I lay my head to rest giving my Β bed a hug
Awakening with a new crepuscle, another morning tug
Eight planets revolve around our sun not knowing what they missed
Only earth performs the show, the ninth, with twilight on the list

  1. I never thought about Earth being the only planet that gets to have a crepuscular time of day. Sounds icky. And when I looked at the etymology, hoping for some explanation for why such an ungainly word means my favorite time of day, I got nothing.
