Twilight

  

I took this picture from a pedestrian bridge over the Paramatta Road connecting Petersham and Leichhardt. I’m still pondering the simile of twilight as a transition from day to night. 

What am I?

Seemingly hard polished outside,

Smooth, shiny and cool to the touch. 

Perfect for travels far and wide;

Pochette for cleansers, paints and such.

What am I?

Outer marching ants stitched just right. 
Inside cheerful stripes on white.

Timeless, long lasting luxury;

A welcome gift for you and me.
What am I?

The perfect gift for Father’s Day!

What a Difference a Day Makes

One of my favourite performances of this song is by Dinah Washington recorded in 1959. “Cuando vuelva a tu lado”, the Spanish original was written in 1934 by MarĂ­a Grever. English lyrics “What a Diff’rence a Day Made” were written by Stanley Adams later that year.

What a difference a day made, twenty four little hours
Brought the sun and the flowers where there used to be rain
My yesterday was blue dear
Today I’m a part of you dear
My lonely nights are through dear
Since you said you were mine
Oh, what a difference a day made
There’s a rainbow before me
Skies above can’t be stormy since that moment of bliss
That thrilling kiss
It’s heaven when you find romance on your menu
What a difference a day made
And the difference is you, is you

My yesterday was blue dear
Still I’m a part of you dear
My lonely nights are through dear
Since you said you were mine
Oh, what a difference a day made
There’s a rainbow before me
Skies above can’t be stormy since that moment of bliss
That thrilling kiss
It’s heaven when you find romance on your menu
What a difference a day made
And the difference is you, is you, is you
