Five Minute Friday: Vivid

The alarm clock peals
and I’m startled
to find myself in the dark.
The white table,
the warm tea,
my father –
just in front of me,
now gone.
Our conversation as real as my tears.

  3. ah, yes. i dream in vividness, too, and sometimes it is harder on the heart than the real day!
    simply, but beautifully told.
