Darkness fell

The darkness edged in slowly, un-sure quite where to put it’s feet safely without stepping in to something nasty. You know when they say night fell or darkness fell well that is just what the darkness was afraid of.

So gingerly, noisily darkness advanced from the horizon to wards me.

As I watched, all was going well until the darkness stubbed it’s toe on the side of a hill. That was it all hell let loose the darkness came crushing down cluttering and crashing around.

Shocked now I stood astounded unsure of what to do. Well how often do you get to see the darkness hopping around on one foot foul mouthed and dribbling? No you are correct it is not a common sight.

The most astounding side effect of the darkness’s fall was the shower, almost waterfall of lights and stars.Beautiful beyond belief all showery and starry. Looking out on what was now night it was strangely beautiful with darkness scrabbling around on the ground trying to get to it’s feet trying ( without success to regain 1 it’s dignity and 2 it balance which it had lost.. not just misplaced totally lost, not under the cushions or on top of the bookcase lost but proper painfully lost) .

Behind the darkness came the twilight tired and thin and looking somehow exhausted. Being so much more delicate and having better sight the twilight could not understand how the darkness had fallen the way it had. Then as it had done, many many times before taking a deep breath the long suffering twilight stooped down to scoop up the darkness.

The moon confused and annoyed was not sure if he was too late or too early… confused by the lack of dark, the night was annoyed and out of sorts. With all this going on there was not much hope of sleep. Soย  I got up and made myself a coffee and dived into my kindle.

    Oh, this is fantastic – Sir Terry Pratchett could have written this; it’s so similar to his style ๐Ÿ˜€

    Soooooooooooo you decided on a bit of
    writing whilst the light yielded a morning
    glow, warmth is approaching and sweet
    scents of the roses are ready to sweeten
    the mood and refresh the senses ๐Ÿ™‚

    I hope that you are ready for the sun Willow ๐Ÿ™‚

      Thankfully the sun is much better behave the light having 20/20 vision usually there is no banging about. The sun’s rays creep up on us gently slowly warming us and lighting the page ….mind you though she is not above burning you with a passion or disappearing at a seconds notice playing hid and seek with the clouds!! Be well and happy!!
