Rural Ramble


That gentle tapping of rain on the roof

in winter offers a sigh of relief

when landscape is a winter wonderland.

Creek burbles in mellifluous murmur,

on this most quiet Christmas afternoon,

while raindrops glisten on green grass

and spider webs hang between two branches.

Blue-gray sky resembles a robe of fleece

while swift, surging creek whispers: peace, peace, peace…
