Ceiling fan

hums

in the dead of night.

Its twisting breath

wipes away

the stale heat and bring forth a moment

of clarity.

The fan

keeps me company

as the world

outside the pallid door

to a small, boxed-in room,

becomes distant

and void.

That fan,

that ceiling fan,

speaks softly

while the world sleeps,

and I’m left alone,

in the darkness.

A simple poem and I like story it conveys.

BRENDA ARLEDGE from Washington Court House on August 07, 2021:

Good write.

I used to love the sound of a fan, but now that same noise drives me crazy.

Go figure. I like quiet now.
