It was a warm day

It was a warm day I thought of wading in shallow water Toes so warm I thought of diving deep in the ocean Surfacing gasping; hands so cold I thought of moving water; in a river Swimming upstream; or following the stream I thought of water from above In the shower; from above and down below I thought of hail Like a hand weighting on my shoulder I thought of rain Like a hand caressing my neck I thought of fog Like whispers behind my back I thought of warm water Felt like bodily contact; all over I thought of cold water Almost like a farewell; the last farewell I thought of a mild breeze Like being soothed; or loved I thought of a storm Like being angry; or sad I thought of ice; on an slippery slope Like meeting the wall; without an emergency exit It is autumn; yet warm I thought of a tropical night Really; I thought of her Dancing in the rain; hugging me
