Morning Repose

spring rain

She slept with the window open by her bed

The rain moved in overnight

Breathing in the soothing smell of its spring dampness

It rested her weary mind and body

She allowed for more sleep and a slower movement toward her day

Coffee in bed

A love letter to her fiancé


The patter of rain outside

The birds rising and singing

The streets deathly still

A lone train whistling in the distance


 the tranquility

 the harmony

the hush

of a brand new day

    Really beautiful poem! I love the vivid detail; it makes me want to lie in bed with a book and pretend it was a rainy day.
