In the night…

…is where I am most at home.

The Daily Prompt.

More entries.

Missive :Β Early bird, or night owl?

Me? I’m an utter night owl.

None of that early bird stuff for me!! Actually, when I hear birds start twittering in the morning when I’m struggling to clean the goop off my eyes long enough to see my glasses, the main thought I have is for a gun. A double barreled shotgun – for maximum destruction πŸ˜‰

But the night. The night with all it’s mysteries. The night when you can light a candle and sit in the yellow glow. The night when you can listen to slow jazz tunes and think of times gone by.

The night where you can hide your tears from the world. The night where nobody notices you reminisce.

The night where only the moon lights your way, where a road looks like a road to a different destination.

The night that hides humanity’s worst.

Alas. The night also is when bad things happen. When people die after a long life. Or suddenly in violence. The night when people’s self hatred culminates in self-violence.

The night hides you.

It still is the time when I’m most alive.

I heard this version of this song tonight – thought it was quite powerful.

And the original french by the original writer, Jacques Brel.

And Edith Piaf’s version.

And yet another version from SA’s very own Clair Johnston. And for me quite a sexy tune. Gorgeous mambo πŸ˜‰

Yes, many versions of the same tune, and quite the kind of song that is perfect for some late night listening…

    • You could be correct on this one. I tried to Shazamm it, but it could not pick it up, and to prove who it is will cost a whole lot of download time πŸ˜‰
      I’ll then just say, whomever she is, sounds pretty good πŸ˜‰

  1. Unfortunately, I get a headache if I lie in past 7 a.m. but I also love the night. Usually go to bed about 11 p.m. but have a habit of standing in the garden looking at the moon and stars before retiring. Sometimes, I suffer from insomnia, probably due to piggy-snort in the bed next to me.

    • I get a headache from getting up at 5:30 every morning. I’m not a morning person at all!! I’m not grumpy or anything, but I really prefer to sleep a bit longer πŸ˜‰
      I, too, suffer from sporadic insomnia. When the world around me insists on loading more and more on my shoulders, that’s when the brain just does not shut down.

  2. Thought i had better say good night in a magical way
    Have a nice day tomorrow
