Poets United is all about community and acknowledging and celebrating individual poets and their poems. This week's poem, written by Madhumakhi, can be found at
In the Deep Darkness of Night
the door creaks,
leaves rustle swooshing,
and rain pitter- patters.
the fan chugs,
tap leaks -
sister and mother breathe deep rhythmic;
and i lie,
muscles clenched, heart
beating drumming pounding
erratically in my chest,
cold sweat lining my brow.
Somehow in the deep darkness of night,
in silence of sleep,
all soft sounds seem scarily amplified.
Thanks, Madhumakhi, for being part of our community.
