After The Rain - A Solitary Step

Sun on duvet sparkled
in disappointing brightness
it was the wrong weather
for the day ahead
as she lied there
determination melting
in the bright light
as she lied there
time enough for clouds
to gather the room to hold
close with soft gray fingers
stroking her back
sweetly pulled under cover
of velvet sleep
as she lied there
stirring to the sound of
rain on windows
shadows dripping sweetly
on walls melting all away
until after the rain
there at the open window
soaked in cool clean air
gossamer white drapes
gentle as butterfly wings
wafting wrapping
her long hair blowing
softly stroking as
she stepped a simple solitary
footfall from chair to air
floating finally free
after the rain
