A Change in the Weather: three double haikus

Only the rain now,
After so many weekends
Wasted, just the rain.

And we have lain here
Dreaming of nothing more than
White flecks on the pane.


The walls are standing,
But the evening sunlight shows
Cracks in the plaster.

You tell a story,
And I'm listening, but the air
Is filled with static.


Senseless this slow walk
To the closed door, beyond which
May lie many more.

Better to turn away,
Despite your inclination,
And pocket the key.
