Day 46 morning Rain — Haibun Journey View From My Window

I listen to the gentle hush of the rain. It steadily gets stronger and stronger for about 5 minutes and then tapers off. I look out the window and see a neighbors porch light reflected across the wet road. It evokes a feeling of the noir film era. I listen to the steady plip, plip, plip of the water dripping from the eves and hitting the down spout.

the last raindrops
clinging to the eves
early morning


reflected shadow
from the lamplight’s glow
mind tricks
