Early showers

The plan was to sleep in this morning. My last Saturday before returning to school. I know I could use the rest before school starts back up but that’s not going to happen. Of course waking up early gives me a little quiet time to reflect on the day, and listen to the rain outside. I do enjoy a good morning rain. Plus my lawn could use it.

Awoke to the rain,
beating hard on the windows.
alarm clock pointless,
droplets of music playing,
nature’s morning wakeup song.

It’s been pretty dry in Texas, but we just had some thunderstorms come through.  We finally received some serious and heavy rain for the first time in months!   

Thunderstorm awakes,
sleep of the dry, dying land,
refreshing rain falls.
