Before the light

It’s a watercolour morning The sky a wash of grey In the gloom before sunrise No motion or sound, but for the raindrops in the river making broad brush circles that briefly touch then disappear subsumed by the water hidden by the ochre reeds that huddle in mock attention waiting for the palette of dawn to colour the day
