Oct 19

Waiting

Sitting
on the trampoline
lined notebook paper
a pen
in my lap

Waiting

as the rain pours down

Watching as droplets
collect
on the dark
green and red chard
mini waterfalls
gushing down their
veined stems

Waiting

as the rain pours down

The paper in my lap 
melts
into pulp
water
streams down my body
plasters my hair to my back
and I stay

Waiting

as the rain pours down

Up
by the house
someone yells my name
beckons
for me to come in

Pretend
not to hear
or see them

Waiting 

as the rain pours down

Feel the trampoline bounce
look over to see my sister climb on
watch
as she settles next to me
asks me
didn't I 
hear her calling

Smile
tell her yeah
I heard 

Waiting

 

for the words to come

A revelation
