Stop-Start

Intense rain

Drumming incessant

Then breath

Still

Drops fall faster

Again

Build to heavy beats

Rattling across the roof

It goes on

For hours

Until

It ceases

Bar the tardy splats

Rhythm uncertain

Water spots

Knock on the ledge

At dawn

A damp stain on the ceiling spreads

Mirrors that on our sheet
