A clear, crisp night
snow covering the ground,
when silence is shattered
as a boom rocks the home
and darkness falls swiftly.
Electronics case their on-mode
and a chill permeates
through out the house.
Candles are lit,
another layer of woolens donned,
hot chocolate brewed and I wait...
Odd the street lamps remain lit
giving off a ghostly glow
while darkness covers the hood.
I want to burrow in bed
wrapped in blankets
yet there are clocks to reset,
alarms too, and reading by LED
removes the pleasure
of easing into slumber
yet I sit and ponder by candlelight.
