When Darkness Falls - Inspired by Three word Wednesday

Inspired by Three Word Wednesday this week's prompt words are judge, nightfall, safety.

W H E N D A R K N E S S F A L L S

Who am I to judge the safety of nightfall
with its yawning mouth and abrupt silence.
Do I not see myself reflected?
with my inner corridors chock full
of absolutes and things that lurk.
Ecstasy too is a possibility
pleasing and assured
the knife edges and all
the forgotten adventures
kaleidoscopes that dazzle
with their fearless symmetry.
Nightfall holds promises that the day could not conceive,
for that is when the things dare to show their true face.
Where illumination is not the reason nor the rhyme,
it is just the gentle breathing of the darkness
and the inevitable quieting of my mind.

Nightfall does hold much promise. Love the last line--started breathing more gently :)

Yes 'The gentle breathing of the darkness' is a great phrase.

You brought two of my favorite things together: Night and Thor's Hammer (the shape looks like the one around my neck). Fantastic offering, the night is quite the powerful and calming influence if you allow it! Thanks so much for sharing!
