just before
seven inches of rain
thunder
lightning
and 24 hours
of no motherhood duties

just socks
in the tropics
tea and biscuits
an oven warming
while I stay in
hunker
and hide
behind
sheets

water down pouring
outside
inside
blankets
up to my chin

ahhhh liquid
pooling
pelting
sloshing
blessing
bringing me
sweet rest
