Quiet evening

the long hours stretch
monotonous drone silence
something is missing.

Morning Rain

Morning rain, noisy
edging dreams away for me.
Waking to sunshine.

Guarding

I will guard the way,
waiting ’til you come again.
No pirates allowed.

Wet Summer Day

The dark clouds run low
teasing tree tops bending low.
Purple flashes now.

Sunset

Blood red sky,

Thunder crashes overhead,

When will it rain?

Teapot

A cup of  great tea
needs water boiling just so.
No whistling, no tea.

I put on the teapot for a cup of tea, it never whistled – so my new teapot has boiled dry and melted the lid.  A nice way to end the day.

Barking Dog

The barking dog runs
out to chase the fireflies
and finds a rabbit.
