Night Rain

A crack of thunder makes me jump.

Lightning flashes through windows

illuminating the dark evening sky.

Rain hits the house, building to a low roar,

as the wind slaps the oak branches on the roof.

Finally, outside calms to a distant rumble.

I settle back in, adjusting my pillow,

while a steady rhythm of rain returns

lulling me to sleep.

I love rainy nights.
