Morning Twittering – Haibun

img_3758-birds253788735

I spent time in the garden yesterday, a tangled mess. The plotting out of chores always seem easier from the doorway. It was no different this time either. Having started late, I raked a line around the perimeter and sprinkled new shasta daisy seeds ( those things are more like flakes). I forgot to water them. Nature, in the mode of taking care of its own, sent rain this morning.

morning twittering
fade under rhythm of rain
in muted twilight

Fire & Rain

at the first rain drops
I move to the window seat
crackling fire
and rhythm on tin roof, I’m
seduced by the elements

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

Thunder Storm

fierce looking storm clouds
churning skies charcoal color
nowhere near peaceful

first lightning then thunder roars
raindrops hit parched earth – I’m home
