Waking Early To Rain

Rain marching downwards

Gravity’s relentless draw 

Early morning thoughts 


Tonight, As Sleep Approaches

Sleep approaches me
The darkness cocooning me
Rain gently falling

A busy day concluded. Time with dear friends exploring one of Seattle’s great landmarks. Now, though, it’s time to sleep. 

I hope your day was rewarding, that it was all you’d hoped it would be. 

Good night, dear ones, good night!

Awoke to rains rage
Where I’d resist the outdoors
I’m safe on my couch

I’m a product of Seattle. So much time in the rain, it defines me. I remember a moment, so many years ago, sitting in my apartment, looking out over Seattle with coffee and a good book. With nowhere I needed to go, nor be, I sat in the window bay watching the rain splatter upon the glass, gravity writing it’s magic.
