Haiku for One Single Impression

One Single Impression posts: Thanks to Lissa at Just Writing Words for the prompt blue rain this week.


color of the sky
drops in early summer day
mourning of blue rain

first blue rain
fills russet washes
spring essence

Original watercolor by Sue.

My poetry books North of Summer and South of Winter are currently available at Amazon and, as always, available from my LuluBookstore in print or as download.

Love the first one, but the second puts a stronger image in my head.

I thought of the blue poppies grown up in the PNW when I the first.

Sue, I believe blue rain is the best for mourning. I always remember the dying scene of will Hemmingway's 'Farewell to Arms' movie. I am sure that dreary non-ending rain was blue.

Your watercolor is gorgeous. I think of summer mourning as a moment of realizing things are not new and young anymore.

Michelle Johnson said...

Your first haiku is my favorite as it allows a picture to form of grieving in the rain.
