Hurricane Boy

Polka Theatre
11 October 

There was a boy,
and within him, a storm
that made him scared
to sleep. He ran to the sound
of raindrops on the roof
and rivulets of water
on the walls.

He lived alone until
one day a girl, a butterfly,
a glimmering of hope ran
through the door, like a moment
of quiet on a busy day,
insects in the meadow,
sunlight shining on a forest floor.

Hurricane Boy is on tour until 1 November 2015
