Night Flight

Night Flight

Wakened at two again,
Rain lashing on the pane..
Filled now with gloom this deep,
How can I ever sleep?
What a hell of a year it’s been,
Dear.

Darkness – a jungle deep,
Corrupting compost heap..
Fighting blindly to get out..
Why can’t you hear me SHOUT?
What a hell of a year it’s been,
Dear.

Love conquers all- who says?
Unites all continents..
Leaders polite – contrite,
Watching their people’s flight?
What a hell of a year it’s been,
Dear.

Our beautiful planet – wow..
What chance do we have now?
But.. in the clearing night,
Suddenly fright takes flight..
What a hell of a year it’s been,
Dear.

So – I’m awake again, at bloody 2am.
But could this be.. my PEREGRINE??
Brushing past the window here,
Dispelling all fear near.

What a hell of a year it’s been, dear!

With thanks for this beautiful image of a peregrine falcon I’m currently tracking down the photographer to provide credit.
