The Night Rain - Poem by john chizoba vincent

The night grew ears suddenly
As the sound emerged horrified,
It was frightening to the night.
The moon was hidden in by the
Dark rain cloud of the night.
There was a momentary hush,
Lightening flashed acrossed the sky.
The thunder clapping by in fear,
Another and another sharp clap of the thunder boomed.
The day's eyes had gone to rest
As the rain drummed on the roof in joy.
All ears on bed went deaf immediately
And the hearts of men beat simuteously in fear.
A warning bird, feeling that the distubance was too
Much for the night started to screech along the north.
All the voice of men were lost in the whirlwind
Of the horrible Night rain.
The storm had already knot her wrapper ready
To unleash the earth of her anger.
Then came the night rain fiercely,
And the roof dismentled and fell.
I heard voices but it was in the distanc dream,
Gradually, I opened my eyes and lo and behold
The roof was on me cracking sorrowfully.
I screamed with all the breath within me
And mother came to the picture and rescued me.
Life is but a second like sleep,
You may have it now and loose it in the next second.
