SOLC 29 of 31: The Storm

I awake around three a.m.

The thunder roles. The lightning flashes. The rain pours.

I remember leaving my window open earlier that night

Quickly close it!

I prowl the house, is anyone awake?

A yawn. Some milk. Back into bed I crawl.

Sleep. That is all I need. Sleep.

Test tomorrow. Test.

Quickly sleep!

All of a sudden it stops.

Everything stops. Peace once again

  1. I LOVE this piece so much! Your short lines give just enough description to keep us wanting more. And I really felt your frustration of needing to get some sleep. I have really enjoyed reading your work this month. I hope you continue writing once the challenge is over.
