haibun challenge – peace

It’s been raining here
all night
soft, steady
the kind of storm
made for staying in bed
listening to the tapping
on the window
curled together
finding peace
in a known world-
shutting out
the one that’s not.

within a storm
finding a piece of peace
wrapped in your arms

    Seems its been raining
    All over poets today.
    Cool air
    The sound
    Syncopating thought.
    And how many times
    Do they say
    Lightning strikes
    The surface of the Earth
    At any one time?
    From space
    There is, it seems,
    A constant flickering,
    Like the coming
    And going
    Of souls,
    A lightening
    And a darkening,
    Maintaining a larger
    Balance, of sorts,
    As unfathomable
    As the
    Blue swirls
    Of cloud and ocean…..
