NaPoWriMo Day 1: It Begins

Bumps in the Night

Under blankets,
Hide below.
We do not know
Creepy sounds originate,
Grandfather clock
Shows hours, late.
Cats come alive
In dark at night
Pursuing things
That give us fright.
Things unseen,
Are surely there.
Unknown things
Striking fear.
We wonder if
They’re far or near.
No means to know
With creeping veiled
By dark at night.
Outside the cover
It can be found,
Seen only by the cats.

Two nights in a row – what are those cats doing!?  They were the first thing to come to mind to write the challenge for Day 1.

And finally, our (optional) prompt. In honor of today’s interviewee, I’d like to challenge you to write a Kay-Ryan-esque poem: short, tight lines, rhymes interwoven throughout, maybe an animal or two, and, if you can manage to stuff it in, a sharp little philosophical conclusion.
