Daylight Savings Time - Original

"I knew a man
who saved daylight...,” she said.
He sleeps.
The moon separates dreams from daily life. The sun restores them.
Time stitches together moon and sun, day and night.
He awoke. Awash in sun. It covered his legs, his arms, his face.
A smile softly crept from the inside out.
The secret discovered, how to save time.
"I'll save sunlight."
First, he reached for his clock. And plucked the seconds. One by one by one.
A bouquet for his love. A bouquet of time
And they slipped backwards together. Just a bit at first.
