High WIndow

I found myself trapped in a small room
dark except for the light
from one small window far
above my head

it was summer outside as
I could see a flash of
blue sky a tangle of
white cloud and the stream of light
through the glass was solid in the
pool of darkness that
rose around me

there was no sense of time beyond
that single moment I tried to
calculate the distance between
myself and the light above but
could not

I felt no fear nor
panic simply disappointment

There was nothing else
