It woke me in the dark
Like a sighing lover
Turning in his sleep
To leave warm sheets
Where his body had been
And then disappeared
Stopping mid breath
Til the blankets cooled
And you wondered
If he’d ever been there at all
Returning briefly mid morning
As though to retrieve the things
He’d left behind
Then gone without a trace by noon

Every snowfall 2020-21 #8: intermittent snow showers, no accumulation
and the dverse prompt of 1/14/21: personification
