Simply put, morning is the period between midnight and noon, though for many it is the narrower period between light coming as the sun rises and noon. But morning has emotional, psychological and physical import for most of us and so has given rise to much philosophical thought, great prose, poetry and song. To paraphrase Shakespeare, the morning steals upon the night, melting the darkness, so that reason rises and clears the senses and understanding.

Churchmouse After Hours is a monthly neighbourhood coffeehouse with songs, stories, poems and prose on a rotating theme. All are welcome to listen or join in. Note: This is not a literary open-mic. Though local authors do participate, we are all readers sharing work we enjoy and admire. Meeting on the fourth Wednesday of most months at 7 pm at Churchmouse Bookshop in St Mary’s, Oak Bay, 1701 Elgin Rd.
