Was That Real?
pitter, patter, pitter, patter,
people are astir.
It's murky and foggy, gray and wet.
Water splashes my right eye.
I blink surprisingly.
The aroma of rotten fish is sickening.
People scattering to collect water, food and other precious items
before the swirling water arrives.
There's a lot of nervous chattering,
ocean's rising quickly!
I taste the salty sea against my tongue.
Eyes flash open,
Deep sleep coming to an end.
Was that real?
