Thank you to Robyn for hosting Poetry Friday Round-up.
The afternoon quiet interrupted by rain
as I sat with a book by the window
and watched the pinking of dogwood
Remembered when dad planted the dogwood
The red morning brought afternoon rain
I pressed my nose to the window
Plip plops, drip drops pounded the window
The wrens hunkered down in the dogwood
The afternoon quiet interrupted by rain.
Look out the window, enjoy the the dogwood and the rain.
