morning rain

sipping strong coffee
in bed
sleepy, lazy, lovely

flawless clouds of gray
make it dim,
a tiny yellow lamp
lets me see the world

flipping classic pages,
nowhere to be

splashes of moisture
beneath the tires
of cars going by,
ease the busyness

water funneling
through the drain
outside the window,
eases the craziness

the smell of fall
wind not warm
nor cool,
eases the weariness

an unexpected
morning rain
calms the mind
