The Witching Hour comes from 1800’s folklore… Where it was used to reference the time of night most associated with supernatural events… According to Wikipedia: “Its when witches, demons and ghost are the most powerful and the most active.”

Wikipedia cites the first instance of the term the Witching Hour as being recorded in writing in 1835… But its usage probably arose much earlier…

Some references point to the year 1535 when the Catholic Church laid down rules prohibiting activity during the window between 3-4 AM due to fears about witchcraft.

I've always considered it the time from about midnight until 4 AM. The time when the entire village is asleep, except for the very old and the relatively young. The good kids, and their mothers and fathers are asleep, preparing for their labors of the following day. But the elderly do not sleep easy during the night, nor does adolescence. So the village sets those that can be trusted to watch. To peep out from behind blinds at the empty city streets. Because those that can't be trusted also prefer to operate in the shadows that are cast darkest right before the dawn. The hungry and evil low things prey at the edges of civilization then - and those that watch sit in the cold, isolated from the warm glow of light spilling out of windows where other people rest - like a lonely set of headlights on a long, deserted stretch of dark highway - their light and the drone of the engine giving away their location to all the things that crawl and hide in the cover of darkness. There are only two things awake at this time. The predators and those who keep watch over the prey. 

It is coming up on 6 AM, the darkness begins to fade, morning birds begin to sing and the rest of society awakes. It is when the long night's watch will rest. When sleep comes without dreams of the dangers that crawl and fly plot and stalk under the cover of the deepest ink of night.

The dream that awoke me:

I put the wrong fish together

And they fought eachother in their bowl

The glass broke, the water spilled out

And they flopped around on the floor. 

 

Scoop them up with your fingers

But they're delicate - so be careful

Or you'll tear their fragile fins

Destroying what you want to save

 

Like a Covid Fever Dream

A biowarfare team

A neverending scene

Everyone pick a team

 

My daughter went to talk to them

She believed the goodness of man

Would make them change their ways

 

They filled her veins with poison

and her brain with lies

All of it digitized online

Central Party authorized

 

By the time I realized I had lost her

They had reduced her to a slave

Even if I ever found her

I couldn't fix the damage done

torn fins, unable to swim

Destroying what I want to save

 

Like a fish in a school

Just another tool

Another partisan duel

Fate is fucked and cruel

I never do poetry. My mind doesn't work this way. It should be a "never ending scream". I realized that after I posted it. 

But yeah... this one needs to be put to some grunge.

But yeah, I really had a dream more or less like this. I lost a lot of the details... but an aquarium broke... I think because we put two fish in it that were fighting one another. We were picking them up off the floor among the glass and water, and trying not to hurt them while doing it... and we put them in two other aquariums. I realized we needed two aquariums - and we needed bigger ones. This part was obvious. I really bought 2 more GloFish Danios and a tiny cat... and I forgot that the Danios ate the first two cats. Sure enough - they ate this one, too. They're like little piranhas that like catfish. They're all in a 5 gallon little tank. I like it because it isn't a lot of work to do water changes. I used to have 55 gallons. Don't have room for one now. Even if I did... don't want to do all that work. 


So... that was what that was about. But then I was outside this like... Chinese building. Stone foundation down to the water. I guess it could be Japanese. Wood framed kinda tudor style building on top of the platform... which was clearly built out into the water. I was IN the water, and the home's occupant was an Asian girl/woman... kind of a hybrid of a few of the Asian girls I've known in my life. She was imploring me to go and find her daughter. The waves were high the water was ice cold, and I was having trouble treading water to listen to her. She told me that if her daughter had been abducted by *them* - they would inject something into the girls they abducted that turned them into... she described it... but basically idiots. Slaves who could do basic functions but had no awareness, no sentience, no autonomy. This revelation, as I swam off - I realized that OUR daughter was missing - and that we suspected it was by this same group of human traffickers... and it had been a while... too long... I should have started looking for her in earnest earlier... and I didn't know how to tell my wife if I found her, she wouldn't be the daughter we had known before she went missing, if this was the group that had abducted her. 


That woke me up... and... it was the witching hour. I've had another strange dream since then. I should document them here when it happens.

There was a point when I was writing my dreams down on facebook, but I think they don't deserve my brain, I should put them here instead where they're at least moderately safe.

Absolutely. This room is also private - so right now just you, wangiss and I can see it.
