Today’s #poem Dog Walking in the Rain

Dog walking looms, my heart sinks at the grey clouds.
Venturing out in the wind and the rain.
We are all washed up, the three of us scurry home.
My eye is caught by the garden.
Beauty all around, rain drenched.
Droplets on a rose, so perfect.
Soggy shoes forgotten, hot coffee.

Today’s #poem Time & Place

Cool clear light
Filters through the thin curtains.
The trains and the birds,
Their chorus sounding.
It indicates the earliness of her awakening
But then it consertinas the time to allow
For coffee and toast,
The news on the radio,
And proper emergence from the chrysalis
Of the previous day.
