Inspiration for ‘Last Night’

This is the first poem in my book-

….Last night

it rained so hard

the roof hummed.


I lay awake


to its rhythm

beneath layers of sound.


I thought I could hear voices;



This poem came to me as I lay in bed one night as it rained steadily on the tin roof.

I tried to imagine what might be in the rhythm; what could I hear.

I like to look beyond the ‘ordinary’ to find the extraordinary in the everyday.

Then I play with words, shifting the weight of words within the sentence, finding the powerful; lots of words may be taken out; sentences seperated, moved into the next paragraph.

I hope you enjoy the ‘final draft’; are they ever really finished 🙂
