Calm In The Storm

Storm’s happening … outside
Thunder ‘n lightning collide
Boom ‘n bang … distant cries
People spooked … I surmise
Caregivers … pick up pace
Needy souls … in this place
Mother … surprisingly … calm
Says the walls … singing songs
Entertaining … night … long
Finally time for me … to go
Storm’s passing … very slow
Guess I’ll run between the drops
Staying dry? Probably not!
Mother … content to stay
My heart’s relieved … today.
