When the storm is near

When the storm is near

Running
paw-thud
fills my dreams
shadows along the wall

distant thunder growls
and the leaves murmur
anxiously

but the moonlight swells
to fill the space
between earth and sky
between waking and dreaming.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.

    1. Especially at the moment. Did you see the eclipse last night/this morning? I missed it. Couldn’t get to sleep until just before 3am so was sound asleep when it happened.

      1. It was cloudy during the time of the eclipse, but later on it cleared and the moon was amazing. I’m going to post some photos later with my sleep quadrille.
