#2,683 Overnight break of rain

Mike Bell/ June 12, 2023/ www.mikebellpoems.com

Overnight break of rain doused
some of that perfervid heat –
sleep’s still shelter I lived as if a
life had remained on course –
tack into a blasted forecast was
required –
waking to soft rain is
as expected –
I had tipped high
skylights in advance last night –
other windows long flung open
to possible spits inside –
I’ll live
with my minor inconveniences
of sideways rain –
dreams drain
with daylight’s gains –
my days
less fazed –
rewind by dwam is
no more my unsettled course
