Priory lake (following Ouse: 6am)

Still and dark. I meet B at the crossroads and we cycle to the river
The sky is clear: as we reach the banks a shooting star streaks across the dark.
The water is cold velvet, draping our shoulders
It takes me a while to regulate my breath
We swim towards Cassiopeia
A distinct, repeating call of a bird I can’t identify.
As we cycle home I stop briefly to admire the first band of sunrise over the lake. It’s going to be a good one.
