Out the dark window softly

gothic trees Pictures, Images and Photos

I closed the door. The room was dark. I didn't open the light.

Tasks can't be completed in the dark, even with the shadows my pupils make. I'm not relieved by the adjustment.

The sky framed by the window lets in a dim glow. The tree limbs are there too.Leafless black things.

If I'm very still I can watch the wind move. If I'm very still my world might wander off without me. If I'm very still the night might creep inside and keep it all contained.

All that sweet dark.

  5. I love your passion for the dripping darkness. You make the light seem a thing too old and ugly and the night a velvet touch. Lovely suzanne. As always :)

  6. Looking at the picture I am flat on my back on the grass, the sun is setting and the bats are flitting through the branches. Stunning imagery Suzy.

  8. I see you are a lover of night and dark, as am I. There's something about that atmosphere that unleashes the imagination. "If I'm very still I can watch the wind move." I like that!
