the day is at its end the towers and domes in the city are a lonely sight...abandoned, all closed.........all hushed up the gnomes of the day are mostly gone... beware...the gnomes of the night have just woken and are now energized... raring to prowl the dark halls and corridors out to the unlit alleys, backstreets and corners cloaked by towering shadows all set to play havoc to unknowing passers-by... in the dark where all restraints are set free where unconquered demons take center stage... in the dark, where the dead gets to live again... in the dark, where anything goes, unnoticed... in the shadows, where the dark sky is the limit....
until the first shafts of light come in... when once again, all secrets seek refuge in their hiding places ---------the dark takes a rest--------- ---------as a new day unfolds--------

(...but of course, it was Harry Potter and the Gringotts Bank I thought of, when one night, the lights went out in our subdivision, which went on for hours. Friday tomorrow and Halloween is fast approaching!)
