Winter Rains in the Dark


hard wind and driven rain so loud I can hear nothing else. 

the rain suddenly lets up. a door that has come loose on it’s latch bangs open and then shut, still not catching. 

I wake out of an early night dream, half in sleep half awake, not sure if I am in my bed or the bed of the dream. I wait until the door bangs again and I know which room is around me. 

complete darkness. only the water in the gutter and the drizzle from the roof sounding. I get up to latch the door and find a window slowly illuminated, the only light in the dark room. 

just as quickly the light is gone. the rain ramps up fast and hard, drowning out a siren.
