RAIN ON A CARAVAN ROOF

A simple, precious childhood memory. Summer holidays in England often involve rainfall, this was some compensation .

 

RAIN ON A CARAVAN ROOF

Grey rolling clouds chased

by the black, spied on through curtain gap.

Blanket coddled boy, expectant on the bunk,

cold air kisses force small hands into cover

as a single tap, announces the show.

Staccato water drum roll on the metal roof,

adjusted summer storm tempo

does it’s hypnotic best.

Half-hearted eyelid flutter,

futile gesture against soothing sound

sleep
