Beyond midnight

 In the dead of night she awakens  from a dream
And as she ponders what it means
She hears the faint sound of thunder
 Then  lightning rips the sky asunder 
And shatters a night so serene

Beyond midnight as rain starts to fall
And raindrops trickle down her window sill
She goes back to  sleep to the rain's rhythmic call
And continued  to dream  until
the rain ceased  and all  was  still

    Joseph this was very nice. If you had kept the verbs consistent at the end, it would have placed even higher! Congratulations on your win.

    Love the flow of this poem and the theme is so apt to what happens to us when woken by a storm-- literal and emotional. Well written.
