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 three books - Dead Flies and Sherry Trifle, My Father and Other Liars and Salisbury Square. In addition I published an anthology of short stories, Life, in a Grain of Sand this summer. A fourth book will be out soon. This started life as a novel in a week on this blog and will follow later this year. I blog about all sorts at and welcome all comments. 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!
