Stone 15: false alarms mean rude awakenings

I wanted to write about seeing things, without the metaphor or simile as suggested by today’s guest post but my brain remains jangled by a recalcitrant smoke alarm that is having issues today. No smoke or fire, just the darned noise!

Day 15 False Alarm

in this silence, there should be peace
more precious after frantic hours
fighting angry smoke alarm
chanting its lies two floors below

without fire to fuel its chatter
perhaps it chirps to prove its voice
but my focus is splintered,
still on edge and waiting
for another chorus of worry and fret
