one of my very favorite things
is to wake up 2 minutes early
just before
just before my alarm goes off
and find that the light is barely grey
and the sound of rain is pattering on the roof
and to turn off the alarm
and roll over
and put my arm around russell
(his tummy is best)
with the kitty leaning against me
and purring
(because she's just realized I'm awake)
and lay still
and listen to the rain
and imagine the petrichor
when I finally get up
and just be

I wonder
how marvellous
the rain sounds on the roof
from your beautiful soft bed
and how you would sigh
when I shut off the alarm
and roll to you
for some extra cuddles
in the rain.
