A short poem from me to you…

โ€˜Last nightโ€™

By

Shelley India Dunn.

ย 

Crimson curtains close,

The CRACK of dawn,

Breaks the heart-shaped glass.

ย 

Endless echoes carried on,

The warm winds turn,

Birdsong into ASH.

ย 

The river and waters run,

RED and reflect,

The flames above.

ย 

Thunder rumbles low,

And HOT lightening reigns,

Over the thirsty earth.

ย 

Crumbling ruins seen,

Through the deep black fog,

Burn bright with every DROP.

ย 

A flash of silver and,

This artificial night,

Puts all the world to sleep.
