Dream Transparency

the rain, falls
downward, a coldness
tapping against the window
and pouncing upon the roof

a transparent, cold
wetness surrounds me
casting this day
so dark and dreary

but, thoughts of you
go through my mind
and keep me warm
like the light
above me…

and the hot cafe mocha
beside me…

and the piano music
that poured out of me
that i’m listening to
and reminiscing…

and i am
daydreaming of
sunny days, where
a beautiful afternoon glow
engulfs you, where
you bask in the warmth
amidst a field of
golden poppies…

i am distant
feeling thousands
of miles away
in another world…

but, in the
same instance
my thoughts keep
you close, where
i continue to daydream
and, pretend things
are different…

and i bask in
the sunshine of
my reverie, longing
yet not longing
sitting and watching
the rain, pour
down against the window
against the darkness
and the coldness outside….

yet, your smile keeps me warm
and thoughts of you soothe my weary soul…
and that is enough, as
the cold night

as fall turns into winter…
