Dark Skies – A Haiku

Ominous rainclouds

Threaten a thorough soaking;

They don’t disappoint.

Overnight – Double Tanka

 

Woken with a fright –

Sky-shattering explosion

Rocks the pitch black night;

Raging rainstorm overhead

Pummelling the helpless earth.

 

The morning after,

The saturated land sighs,

Breathes gossamer mists

Veiling periwinkle skies,

As sleepless commuters rise.

Transformation – A Tanka

 

The emerging sun

Transforms our puddle-soaked roads

To molten silver;

Gleaming, dazzling rivers flow

Through the weatherworn city.

Hi all, I have returned from my overseas adventures! After a week of glorious Spanish sunshine and temperatures in the mid-30s, I was welcomed back to the UK by thick black clouds, an almighty deluge and a bumpy plane landing! In homage to the beautiful British weather, I felt it appropriate for my blogging return to be rain-related. Here’s hoping for some brighter and crisper autumn days to come!
