Please turn on the sound and enjoy it while reading the poem.
The rain settled in,
Becoming the soundtrack to
Everything slowed down
To accommodate its tempo,
I worked the crossword,
Barely lifting my pen
Before moving to the next clue,
My brain lulled into
A placid trance,
I barely glanced at the time,
Not inclined to worry or care,
The clock ticked, the cat yawned and stretched,
I fetched a cup of tea
While the rain kept up a steady beat,
My daydreams turned to distant shores
And hidden doors
In a comfy chair,
And still the rain came down.
These are the most relaxing words I’ve read all week!
Thank you and thanks to the rain for providing inspiration!
