There is no excerpt because this is a protected post.
Fluffy cumulus float across the sky in flocks, like unspun wool waiting to be carded. Behind them nimbus come, dark and water-laden. As the evening darkens, the rain begins to fall.
They bob on the pool’s surface, abandoned. Plastic primary colours contrast with the sunlit, brilliant blue of the water. The joyful babies who played with them are gone, but still they float, awaiting their return.
Water swells all around me. My toes peep out above the waterline. The tap dribbles a thin line of hot water. Embraced by its warmth, I float away into relaxation.
