Waking up I saw the raindrops on the window
Gleaming in the morning sun as it rose, proudly from the East,
greeting the West.
I lay back down and closed my eyes, wishing the past few weeks away.
The air was cool on my skin and I breathed in long and deep
Content to be at peace for just one moment of the day
Before thoughts of keyboards clicking, paper shuffling.
Mornings this gray, wishing I could drift
like rain beads down the window
to join the earth.
