Dark Mumbles from a Dim Mind's Night

October 29, 2006

Black dog snarls at the passing cricket
Cricket rubs his legs
Sound wakes the seagull
Gull squawks out loud

Peace is broken in the sleepy back yard
Man in the house barks a command
Dog cowers and finds a dark spot
Mouse eats the cricket whole

Sleep is broken by the dream
Dream finds the spark of life
Life goes on in the place of sleep
Sleep finds a dark space to hide
