I can’t sleep when it rains, or if I do I won’t wake up

its the rain I can’t shake.

the musty smell of morning after
a thunderstorm

the wet world, drying like decay

We don’t have a tin roof but
we can hear the weather dancing on
the flat one

and it makes me want to curl up
by the fire
in a blanket with tea
while reading

but I’m really just dreaming …

  1. So I’ve read and re- lead this about 5 times…it keeps drawing me back in. I can’t quite put words around it, but it’s haunting in a beautiful way.
