I awake with the rain.
Still dark, the rain is at play
I hear the drops landing gently
upon the leaves.
There is a crispness to the sound
like wind-rustled paper
and I immediately think, autumn.
Briefly, thunder grumbled
admonishing the rainfall to keep silent.
“People are sleeping!”
I am grateful they persisted.
