Poem: Pocono Mountain Morning

Pocono Mountain Morning

Pocono Mountain morning
Heavy rain beats down on roof above
Brushing and splattering upon the green scenery on display

Watch droplets on the window
Listen to the pat, pat, pattering
Kayaks sit idly for now
Near the sweeping waters aroused by the storm

Breathe in the morning
Wetness all around purifies the world
And me

Others sleep
I’ll sit in this chair
Shifted to a window’s view
That’s what I do

I love the rhyme at the end, even more powerful for the fact that there hadn't been any end-rhymes up till then.
