the sun smells
like pepper and honey
the sun feels like
a scarf wrapped loosely around my neck

in the rain
my hair fills up with water
forgetting our umbrella again

remembering our umbrella
i hold it above our heads
i am taller than you

when it is raining there are
ducks and worms
mud and shoes
blankets and waves
me and you

when there is sun and rain at the same time i feel very happy

out in the harbour
birds are flapping their wings
against the water

closing my eyes
i sew the features of your face together

tell me about your dreams
i will listen
