Perhaps?

5:00 PM passes, total darkness encroaching,

Not yet descended

Sky retains bluish, now navy, tint

Beyond copse of stripped trees

Red Christmas lights peek

Twinkle a staccato beat

Tortuous enticing hint

Of other-worldly merriment,

Promise of traditions continued

Beyond barren confinement

Longest night of darkness past,

Hope whispers in her ear

“Perhaps your longest night has too?”
