Random June Night

On a random June night,

Of a day that hasn’t gone so right,

I want to curl up on my bed,

In the warmth of someone’s arms and calmness in my head.

Just lay there if not sleep,

Listening to the cuckoo and try not to weep,

Just lay there if not dream,

Looking at the lone firefly as it twinkles with gleam.

Breathing in the air that is full of petrichor,

Rhyming conversations in the head with metaphor,

Wondering how I really survived the day,

Hoping a better random June night is on the way.
