Carried Away

I fell

And when I hit bottom

It hurt

Water created waves

Against the cobble wall

The beat of her wings

Matched the throbs in my flailing arms   

 Her flight dodged the fallen rain

Nearer still I could tell she was

Different

Grabbing hold of my body

She took me into space

The stars blinded me

Closing my eyes I felt the heat

But not of stars or nebula

Of the Sun’s depravity upon soil

Continuing on she left me 

To save another from drowning

In the well 

Her fleeting call reminded me

To stand up on my feet

And take my first breath
