Morning Rain

Falling awake

to the sound of dappling on the window.

Tired eyes peeling open,

expecting the sun’s warm glow,

only to a glimmer of surface light.

 

Confusion develops

as you begin to stretch.

Certainty sinks in

as you gasp for a breath.

You have to swim with all of your might.

 

Plunging toward the surface,

you imagine dying here.

The cold water piercing

your skin and your fear.

The surface closer gleaming.

 

A sudden burst of air,

you inhale to sheer surprise.

Wiping your face,

you cannot believe your eyes.

Had you been dreaming?

 

Falling awake

to the sound of dappling on the window.
