morning in May
raindrops scribble 
on the window panes

    draining the landscape
    through my window

    feel the dampness
    misty San Francisco fog
    - confuses the tourists

    Waiting at the window,
    suddenly the face of a man
    running through the rain

    wind's silent whispers
    balmy spring morning

    capturing my attention

    after the rain
    the raindrops from the roof
    hit a can

    barren wintry road
    weed in purple bloom
    takes a turn
