Smorgasbord Poetry – Colleen Chesebro’s Weekly Tanka Challenge – #HaikuSequence – Rain by Sally Cronin

This week on Colleen Chesebro’s Weekly Tanka Challenge 189 it is Poet’s Choice. I have chosen to write a Haiku Sequence about one of my favourite topics of conversation…Rain.

Haiku Sequence – Rain

It can be daunting
to find beauty in the rain
when it drowns the earth

Summer flowers strive
to retain vibrant colours
under such onslaught

Wind joins its cousin
laughing at the destruction
combined efforts bring

Birds sit and shiver
in the glistening hedgerows
desperate to feed

Then a ray of light
as sun fights its way through clouds
it has come to play

The wind and rain pause
waiting for the sun’s next move
in nature’s board game

They admit defeat
no match for the sun’s power
and leave in silence

Birds begin to sing
and flowers lift up their heads
to smile at the world.
