Describe a time of day in the form of prose or poetry. Appeal to all the senses. Make me feel the buttery sunlight on my skin or the chilly embrace of night, or anything in between.

I will be selecting winners based on how evocative the imagery is, the skill of the writer and (although this isn't the most important part) how professionally the work is presented. That means you can use WritersCafe's default text formatting and proofread your work for errors in spelling and punctuation. But most of all, have fun with it :)

This contest was inspired by a writing prompt by the same name (available here:
