The Darkness cometh

The darkness cometh.

Children talking in the background
Fountain gurgles out a tune
Sky is dark and grey and cloudy
Tonight we will not see no moon
Soon the day will turn to darkness
All is kind of silent, still
The dusk it always makes me wonder
And I guess it always will.

I will sit here for an hour
Then go in and watch the news
I love to feel the closing daytime
And maybe if I had to choose
I'd sit and wait till morning wakes up
There's something in the night time that
Fills my soul with so much wonder
I think that night time's where It's at

Here it comes, the sky grows darker
Little birds begin to sing
They say goodnight then off they wander
The darkness shadowing their wings
I think that rain will soon be coming
Maybe it will rain all night
I love my bed in cold wet winter
it's cosiness gives me delight.

    Hi Peter, It is strange how we can feel such a calm first thing in the morning and last thing at night. At least I do. Now if this feeling could last throughout the day, I would definately be a happy man. Well my friend I am back for the calm and peace that your writes always deliver to me. Your words flow through this piece with your usual gentle style. You paint your canvas with dark, soft colours, your vision flowing forth easy before us. I enjoyed the read my friend. Your Friend always..MIKE

    Oh yes Michael, you are so right. Both dusk and dawn have that powerful sense of mystery about them, which is almost unbelievable. I thank you so much for your kind comments, my friend....peter
