I associate the night with a a sense of quiet.
A silence that's peaceful.
A feeling of contentment that permeates into the core of my being.
I see the stars sparkling in the dark blue sky,
The moon casting it's cool, comforting glow, like a blanket over the sleeping world.
I hear no sound, except the occasional squeak of a rat scurrying into a hole,
The watchman shifting in his creaky chair,
My dog suddenly awakening from a deep sleep to let the world know that he is in here to protect his people.
And I sit here, enjoying the sounds of the night.
