I used to sit on the back porch and look at the tree limbs in the dark.  Darkness teaches mystery.  You can only see clearly up to certain edges, and then into the shadows the unknown reigns.  The limbs of the trees seem almost to hang upon the sky at night, and they reach out to you with scary ghost hands (as every child knows).
