Mi,when I participated in the Haiku Challenge last year, little did I imagine I’d fall in love with this pretty form of verse. I attempted different forms of haiku during that month and thus began a habit of writing haiku for my friends on a regular basis. I even communicate by haiku with Vidur sometimes. But no, we don’t want to publish those here eh?

Today my haiku is for the prompt “rain”. It is raining cats and dogs – why, I’d say it is raining the entire zoo.

As usual, I couldn’t stop with one. So I am raining haiku

Haiku

Dark clouds bring sad news
My tears mingle with raindrops
Grey skies cry with me

Lone road, flooded street
Bleak days ahead. Unsure steps.
Heart slips in puddle

Too sad, eh? Here we go, then!

Children laugh and shout
Joyous sounds, a crescendo
Drown thunder and rain

Myriad raindrops
Refreshing cloudburst of joy
Heart sings with birdsong

Raindrops drizzle love
Parched earth awakes, flowerbuds bloom
A garden is born

Cool rain, warm sunshine
Bright blue sky, rainbow, angels
Sprinkling happiness

Thirsty fields rejoice
As summer showers embrace
earth smiles graciously

Showers of kindness
Soothing warmth Awakens soul
A new beginning

What a joy to write haiku!
