Spooked

Late one silent evening
Babies tucked in bed
Sitting watching television
Fireplace straight ahead

Nic-nacs neatly sat upon
House is all locked up
When all at once, yes in one done
All came tumbling off

No one else was in the house
No movement yet such force
No draft to cause this – strong enough
Nothing obvious of course

A different day children in bed
Upstairs we’re getting changed
Kitchens neat with no ones tread
And visitors are prearranged

We go downstairs to make a drink
Where unto our surprise
There’s coffee strewn accross tops and sink
No one/thing before our eyes

Another day with someone else
We go out for a drive
A lady with brolly – red – crosses in front
Disappears she’s not alive

We turn around to double check
No houses just fields and roads
One solitary lightning strike
Together we’ve goose bump nodes
