Stormrise – #Haiga, #Haiku

20190703 haiga

Clouds roll from the west
Laden with precious cargo.
Slake the mother’s thirst.


This was written for Colleen Chesebro’s Tanka Tuesday #134, poet’s choice of words. I wrote this to celebrate coming storms, the dog days of summer where rain comes and soaks the ground. I love the afternoon and evening storms, the lightning and thunder, the pounding taps of warm rain on the windows.

I guess I could do without the hail, haha!

    We’ve rain in our forecast for days… not helping with the humidity at all though. At least not yet so far. But I did get my first itty bitty batch of cherry tomatoes from my garden!
