Keep the Monsters Away

by Richard L. Provencher  
3/04/2014 / Marriage

Earth reels and rocks
exploding with emotion

and he left his bed
to check the temperature of the night:
its crashing sounds
whispering limbs
and startled sky

jugular ribbons, white streaks
a cacophony of crescendos.

In spite of storms where monsters
infiltrate thinking
his mind races to days
when good ole mom sprinkled away
childish fears with Holy Water
in each bedroom hideaway.

Gaining a toe-hold on the
many precipices of life
he attained success, good standing
in spite of such
storms confronting him

now carefully closes the window
longing for those moments
when as a child he raised youthful
lips to the sky
trusting in the purity of rain
descending and gulped hungrily at the
moisture received in the
innocence of life.

Without further fanfare
he stomps across the cold floor
and returns to the bedroom
of his desires; wraps himself in the
safety of his wife's embrace.

Richard enjoys writing poems; many of which have been published in Print and Online. He and his wife, Esther are also co-authors of stories and a print novel. They are "born again" Christians and very busy in their church, Abundant Life Victory International, in Bible Hill, Nova Scotia.
