Rainy, Fall Morning

by MissCJMonroe

The alarm jingles its call dutifully
And then my stagnant body begins to flow

I stretch into the thick blanket of darkness
Still half in the stream of dream

I ponder the unusual amount of night
That still clings to this morning
And recognize it’s prophecy
Of a fast approaching winter

I creep up out of my creaking bed
To scurry about the house
I am cautious not to wake the friend
Still and deeply breathing on the sofa

The dogs stir at the vibration of my footsteps
Wagging their tails
Stretching their legs and tongues
And warmly curling around my feet

Droplets bead over the windows
Illuminating only a dull gray so far
Some of the beads break free
And slide down the glass
In a tiny spider web design

There is a place inside of me
Buried deep where the most important things stay
That is swathed in warm blankets
By a rainy, fall morning
