Autumn Sky Poetry . . . Number 20 . . .


     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.
