Day 8 – National Poetry Month

April 8, 2019

Prompt #8: Imagine weather indoors: a thunderstorm in the kitchen, a tornado in the family room.


weather inside the house

Clouds gather near the ceiling
Lightning flashes and thunder booms
Darkness signals that rain is nearing
It splashes down and floods the rooms


The formerly made bed now in tatters
The vase on the sill falls and shatters
The wind blows as strong as the waters
That fall with unstoppable splatters


But slowly the rain starts to cease
And the house is finally at peace
All that’s left are the sodden sheets
And more than a few upturned seats

– Lucía Garrido (8th grade)
