In The Rain #poem #poetry

Jane’s Prompt is to use this picture and five words.

Jane's prompt rain

Relentless rain, on my window pane

Greets my waking. Hands still shaking

I pour the coffee, brush sleep-grits off me

Resist my bed, those books to be read.

Cold water a river, alive in a  shiver.

The day’s begun; regrets I have one.

She’s gone…

About TanGental

My name is Geoff Le Pard. Once I was a lawyer; now I am a writer. I've published four books - Dead Flies and Sherry Trifle, My Father and Other Liars, Salisbury Square and Buster & Moo. In addition I have published two anthologies of short stories, Life, in a Grain of Sand and Life in a Flash. More will appear soon, including a memoir of my mother's last years. I will try and continue to blog regularly at geofflepard.com about whatever takes my fancy. I hope it does yours too. These are my thoughts and no one else is to blame. If you want to nab anything I post, please acknowledge where it came from.

    Nicely done – the ending really comes as a surprise. Not sure what a sleep grit is though!
