A little bit of whimsy

Night Falls

No it doesn’t, it rises. It gathers in little pools at the bottom of fences and under hedges. It slithers up walls and clots under the eaves. It coalesces under cars and smothers the banks of flowers in gardens. It fills the streets until it overflows the rooftops and still it rises until the last of the stubborn light is overcome and the first stars are revealed in a sky still gently glowing. Watch the night gathering itself around your feet the next time you’re out at dusk.

I have no idea what brought this on.
