rain in the night – June 12


rain in the night brings

a smile


snug in our beds

windows askew

doggie hiding in the

tile bathroom

the steady rising and

slowing patter

flows like good wishes

down the roof slant

washing away the

sins and failings of

whatever life threw

at us that day


and with my love beside

me in our modern cave

I peek out from under

the covers, give her

hand a squeeze and

breath deeply at the

crispness of our lives


appreciation is only

a word.
