Rainy Days

wind starts door creaking
curtains billow through windows
dust from parched earth rise
as gray skies give way, raindrops
clamor – kids on porch with friends

wind starts door creaking
curtains billow through windows
dust from parched earth rise
kids on the  porch with their friends
paper boats in hand, pure joy

  1. I love both of your Tanka’s Pat. Great images form in my mind. I’m ready for spring and your words bring fond memories of summer. ❤
