Bricks have gone

pile 3

Stacked up high

against the wall

keystone bricks

waiting for their time

odd has their life been

moved from house to house

laid dormant for years

not used at all

finally a new home

wanted once more.

A British earthquake

A very loud noise

Rumbled above

Like a herd of elephants

Partying on the roof

Blinds shook and clattered

Dog hid under the chair

Tremors were recorded

On the Richter scale

Coffee splashed gently

Inside its mug

Just for a moment

The earth almost moved

In this very British earthquake.
