Autumn Sky Poetry . . . Number 20 . . .
 

Quake

     by Tyrell Johnson



The ground shifts

under our feet


the fishbowl lands

with frightening speed


you and I

fall to our knees.


When all is over

we look to the floor.


Our shattered windows,

the broken door.


We can’t remember,

was it us,


or the earth,

that shook to the core.
