4am silence (Poem 2019 – 14)

cloaked in night’s shadows
swaddled in silence but for the ticking clock
and the gentle rumble of an aeroplane
overhead
glowing street lights cast shadows
on whitewashed walls
as wayward cats slink stealthily
home
comforted by cosy warm beds
and the sound of the ticking clock
