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
