sipping black coffee and watching

--


A slow and perfect autumn rain stretches out

Into a second morning, and my backyard drinks it up.

My wife will sleep on a little later than this, 

And won’t go outside today anyway. Nor me, 

I watch from a bedroom window.

Meditation is over and the first light of day is growing.

I am quiet, sipping black coffee and watching the rain.
