Broken House

Updated on August 10, 2015

A child with black bags

Bags under his eyes

Eyes gleaming no more

More ore, more beauty

Beauty sleep ruined

Ruined by the never-ending hoots

Hoots daily in the house

House broken by the force-gale wind.

      change is inevitable,

      inevitable are the winds.

      winds of change.

      Love the rhythm and the final/first word repetition; clever.
