Haiku - Rain

This week's prompt at the Write Tribe is Haiku:

We will use a “Kigo” as our prompt. And since it’s the rainy season (at least here in India!) what better prompt can there be! So write a Haiku, with some element of the Rains in it. Your “Kigo” can be anything, clouds, raindrops, frogs, paper boats …. Let your imagination soar!




Here's  one I wrote sometime ago so sharing again


Raindrops splashing down
Creating puddles of fun
Children jumping in


And some new ones

Nectar from Heaven
Flowers reaching for the sky
Riot of colours


Wet pitter-patter
Face looking skyward refreshed
Thirsty earth relieved



Warm Regards
Photobucket
