Wide-Awake Eyes
winter storm passing in the night
     micro-burst is not a gentle breeze
           giant palms sashaying in the wind
needing a hand to hold in the dark
      winter storm passing in the night
           silver moon taking a short vacation
blue bolt penetrating the skylight
     painting the white pillowcase blue
            needing a hand to hold in the dark
silver moon taking a short vacation
        blue bolt penetrating the skylight
            piercing a pair of wide-awake eyes

I really really like this.  I can't figure out the pattern of repeating words but I think that is what I like most about it.  It flows so well.

I'm not a fan of repetition but you have made repetition work wonders for this piece. To me the repeated lines were an indication of the event happening again, like the "blue bolt penetrating the skylight"...and this is exactly how it happens, over and over again. Storms like this frighten me. At times like this I'm the one who is "needing a hand to hold in the dark". *shiver* Wonderful work, bravo!

Magnificent write, Linda Jo!  Great imagery and expression of emotions.  Lethal combinations for a poet's mighty pen.  Thanks for sharing.

Well written Linda Jo!!!  Hopefully, the silver moon will see the need in our wide awake eyes and cut short the vacation...
