#OctPoWriMo – 1

The clock ticks down
The day is nearly done
The wind has settled
And the chimes ring none

The lights are low
No moon, only cloud
The rain fell all day
And the thunder was loud

The children are asleep
Stuffed toys in their arms
Their faces at peace
Dreaming of charms

#OctPoWriMo No. 1

  1. A poem borne out of observation, I think 🙂 I like it. The ending with the children fast asleep through the thunder, almost to show their dreams can’t be disturbed. Beautiful.
