    dotsdreaming dots

    In the dark, in the fall
    Pitter, patter rain drops fall

    A fear will creep upon us all
    Pitter, patter rain drops fall

    Something breathing in the corner
    Pitter, patter rain drops fall

    Shadows moving to each other
    Pitter, patter rain drops fall

    Virus stirring, pay attention
    Pitter, patter rain drops fall

    Thunder taking turns, too tall
    Pitter, patter rain drops fall

    Of my bunk I have a�fallin
    Pitter, patter rain stops falling

      Nice stuff! I like the noisy word sounds. Poem possesses
    good cadence, rhyme and timing. Nice comical ending too. There is a child-like wonder in all of this. Keep sharing

      This sounds a bit dark. A nightmare perhaps, and it takes falling out of the bunk to wake up and stop the nightmarish rain from falling. Whatever your thoughts while writing, it gave me the chills as I read it.

      LOL---you can borrow a word from me anytime. Seriously, I realize you wanted the hidden, dark meaning in this poem to carry an important message; and I hope you didn't mind that I chose to focus on the "surface" of your words in my comment.

    Just like the old nursery rhymes, your poetry can carry a message well no matter which way it's read. I'm never surprised when someone hasn't a clue what "Humpty Dumpty" really says. Unfortunately for us all, the world is a dangerous place to call home.

    Take care, Sharon

      It's been a while since I've fallen out of bed, but I certainly have not forgotten. I LOVED the unexpected turn in the ending and am still giggling that I did NOT see that fall coming. You never disappoint me! This one goes to my favs. :-) Sharon

       yes now that you have explained the "message" and made a few changes.i have read it with the vision of the children in my head,that you are talking about.last night i said it was like a bedtime story but now after fully understanding the hidden meaning,it has definetly got a creepy sad feeling to it." pitter patter pitter patter."the virus keeps spreading,silently like the pitter patter of rain and constantly.with no sign of it clearing up, yes it is warning for the children and the adults also.they have got to be "cleared up" on the danger that,s spreading accross the land.pitter patter....................or they shall also fall of their bunks.
    it,s a sad theme, but i like they way you brought it accross withe the images of shadows,rain,thunder. now that i understand it.
    thanks for sharing
    keep writing
    ps my niece has married a south african man,they met in london and now they are moving to pretoria. they have invited me for a visit but i shall have to save some euro,s first.

      seems like u had a bad dream on a stormy night,lol.i think you have written this very lightheartedly,but i have read some of your other works.and i have this "creeping"suspiscion there is more to this than meets the eye.and again i shall say but!!
    if i am wrong then, i think this has been written for a child,your,s?a niece, nephew? as a bed time story..it may look childish at first glance,but again,the alliteration and your words just dance off the page.i think i shall read this one to my son, see what kind of reaction i get from him.
    thanks for sharing, shall i say cute or mysterious i,m not sure, but i liked it.
    till the next
