Rain at 2 A.M.

Last night when I awoke
At about two A.M.
I heard it raining outside.
I went to the window
The one with the now
Nondescript almond tree
Outside,
And opened it wide.
I stood there for
Maybe five minutes
Enjoying the air
And the sound.
The rain was so busy
And the world so peaceful.
It was easy to enjoy
Because I had only
Pleasant things
To do today.
