thanks to the waters of spring
bare branches being dressed

Clouds & Spring

#Tanka Tuesday

rain clouds all day, a
gray haze blankets springs newness
pelting rain drops plop
so we wait, the birds and I
listening to sound of spring

first drops
pelt delicate blooms –
spring rains

the first drops
sent tremors through blooms –
spring rains

a cloud of
cherry blossoms fell
to the earth
by spring rains
blossoms – delicate carpet
reflection on soil
