Rain – Modern Cinquain

Now rain floods the house to the ceiling and I
think we are drowning but in truth, we are diving, and the deep
is so dense but weightless, we learn to breathe underwater. Now,
stepping outside, our feet touch the ground. Is this what baring
our eyes to the stars feels like? Blurring summer and winter?
