yesterday splashing like an eager child
smiling at my reflection in a puddle of anticipation
I felt both powerful and cradled

today I am under-dressed as the skies turn esoteric
frozen-faced and drizzle-damp with trepidation
my knowing bobs past in the gutter

within me a leaning, that is all
a mere tipping towards fear
love rises beyond my grasp

and the whole world changed
