Outside, the day has begun to break
And the remains of last night’s rain
Fall as huge lazy raindrops on the leaves –
It sounds like the gentle protest
Of several tens of popcorn
Being freshly prepared

Inside I cuddle closer under the bedcovers
Sleep eludes me
I dreamt you were here
But no,
My pillow, my only company
Sits on my head

The neighbourhood cockerels
Crow heralding the coming dawn
Of a beautiful morning
