tree frogs are singing
to orange-black tinted clouds
against purple sky

set in the foreground
an A-Frame rooftop peeks out
between long-leaf pines

further off due south
thunder still rumbles and rolls,
threatening the peace

a single raindrop
draining from the carport roof
tickles down my nose

the sight and the sound
of the eternal present
in the perfect now...

    Congratulations on your win in my "Raindrops Falling" contest Tim. I had a very hard time judging this contest as most of the poems were so well written. Thank you for supporting my contest. Love, Carol
