Rain on Vacation

It was raining when they awoke
hear it tapping on the air conditioner
on the bulkhead below the kitchen window
as I get my second cup of coffee
no pool in the yard in the sun like yesterday
cartoons and coffeecake on the living room rug
stay in pajamas a little longer girls
lounge in the gray of today
linger by the open window
touch the rain on the wet screen
breath the damp of the morning
indoor fun, crafts and snacks later
rain on summer vacation
