Description

 Lullaby by Ross Thompson, written during 2020 Lockdown. 

Tomorrow, we will wake to a green light 
pouring out like wine from a cracked ewer, 
spreading across freshly laundered sheets,
tickling our chins like butterflies in flight.


We will stir gently. The hum of the street
will cradle us as the new day resets
with gentle fingers caressing our skin,
whispering promises of safe footsteps

 
as we forge into the day, hopefully,
bravely, arms like topsails between the sun
and North Wind, braced for impact as we sprint
headlong into the as yet uncharted
