For We Write Poems poetry prompt: We Wordle #2
Stormy Night Shadows
Their whispers hung just beneath cap
of black umbrella as she told him how fresh
bread always put her in a strawberry mood.
Running home just in front of the thunder,
the boy had smirked while trying to catch
fading sunlight with his father’s fishnet.
Storms sometimes found him thinking of sugar
coated pecans, even while hissing rain
darkened the floor of his concrete patio.
Strident sirens rattled loose windows,
stirring the old woman to mumbling
from behind her stringy hair.
Suddenly, dawn floated just above distant
mountain, scrubbing night’s stormy shadows
from what was to be a glorious morning.
