Do you see the beauty of the night? The beauty of the dark? Do you know that dark is beautiful? The night is beautiful?
Read the short essay and find the beauty of dark and night...

The dark, black sky is my canvas. I can write anything what I need. I can draw anything what I feel. The wooly clouds are the drawings. The sparkling stars gives a shiny look to the painting. The surrounding is already swallowed by the dark. Everything is dark black. The sky, the surrounding, even I can't see myself. 

Wait! I see something yellow-gold colour, round shaped object, floating on the sky. Is it the bright sun? The sun which gives us light in the day? But it is more and more brighter in the day. And, at the night, the only light is supplied, by the streetlamps. I mean it is better to travel anywhere at the day time. But, not at dark. Because, as the folks sayings, the bad and poisonous creatures and animals are coming out from their hideouts at night.

The shadows of the huge trees have covered the streets. I closed the eyes. Darkness is everywhere. Not a single glimpse of light. I opened my eyes. I see the images clearer than before. The pool, the gate(it is a huge one), the tree patterns. I feel more than before. The wind is hugging me. My ears have filled with the noise of the silence. The tiny sounds waves are entering to my ear. And I captured so many other things too. 

 I'm still sitting on a chair, with my pajama suit, holding a pen with my right hand and my notebook on my lap. It is the time.

Do you think that dark is beautiful? Do you feel free in the night? Do you like to stay alone in a dark night? I think you do. That is the only way(As I feel) to release stress.

Don't be afraid of dark. If you, the dark will swallow you. But, if you are not afraid of dark, you will see the beauty of the NIGHT!! The beauty of the DARK!!

A lovely essay. Felt a little creepy (just a compliment). You have described the things in the night wonderfully, with your own words, in a simple manner.
I do love to cope with my stress, joining the dark night.
A beautiful essay.
-Great Job @Nishi, Good luck for your future writings =)

It's true. We shouldn't be afraid of the dark night. Night time is generally quiet than during daytime, it is calm and peaceful, giving us clarity of thought. In the dark of the night, we are more alert to sounds and sensations. Our body is more relaxed. We are less stressful. So enjoy the night.

Even things that may seem scary at first have a beautiful side to them. It all depends on the way you look at this. This is a nice and well thought out essay. Good job.
