Nine days into the global poetry challenge and today’s suggestion is to craft a poem in which something big and something small come together. Although small in stature, Delilah is certainly a force to be reckoned with!
Delilah and The Storm
The calamitous crash thundered through the thick thatch
And Delilah took shelter in a hopeful hole between the beams
Gusts grew like giants, driving the terrifying tree deeper into the ruined roof
And tiny Delilah scurried speedily into her precarious refuge hanging on for dear life
Though small in stature, this resourceful rodent was not one to surrender to a challenge
But loose vaults were swinging from the sunken ceiling
And the stubborn storm gathered force like a merciless wrecking ball
Delilah’s tiny rodent heart pounded through her terrified tail
as she held on heroically in her hollowed hide out
Holding her sacred ground until the eye of the suffocating storm slammed shut
And she escaped.
