The Edge of Darkness


Standing at the edge of darkness watching daylight take its final curtain call is both exhilarating and intimidating.  As the light fades and the evening chorus of cicadas and other night creatures begin I retreat to the safety of my four walls.  The blackness of the night clouds my vision and makes me unsure of my steps.  Doubt seeps in and settles in the cracks and crevices of my mind.

And yet I know that tomorrow the sun will once again rise for an encore performance.  Doubt will be cast aside by the light of a new day and vision restored .

The anxiety of it all could be avoided if only I would learn to sleep with a night light.
