Take your journeys home by Christopher Hopkins

Take your journeys home

Bonfire skies light up
in shutter speed.

The thunder claps roll away,
away,

and I can’t tell
if the sound is heaven
or the infrasound of traffic,
dual bound.
Away, away.

A slowing S.O.S.
of rain from the gutter spill,
as the storm takes its journey home.

Away, away.
