A Change in the Weather

The tides coming in on rocky grey blight knocking on my worn-out cabin door incessant waves break white in full sight whoosh of clear bubbling effervescent light inching ever closer, its breath is hard to ignore helpless seaweed pushed up on the shore I greet my uninvited noisy morning guest a crow sitting on a weather worn old log just a stop to preen while getting some rest we both watch the ocean’s journey quest with hopping steps he decides to finally jog and I give a shout to bring in my wayward dog just at its peak the tide turn stutters and retreats the morn has darkened, today we will get no blue like a marching band, rain starts in pelting sheets the waves are now crashing with similar beats I close my door and secure the shutter latch too looks like I will stay inside, I have housework to do 8-5-2020 Nature Rhyming Poetry Poetry Contest Sponsored by: Brenda Chiri

You've written a great descriptive poem here Jeanne that has a great atmosphere. I can almost feel the 'pelting sheets' of rain. Good luck in Brenda's competition.
