Words on Refreshing Rain

I

You must climb mountains

reach for highest of peaks

to fall from the sky.

Bring on the flooding

ten hours of gentle rain

thunder to wake us.

Too warm for a snow

grey clouds move over valley

this overcast day.

Our pitcher seems full

enough to bring back the spring

in our weary step.

To take lonely walks

within yellow rabbit brush

examinations.

                                                                                                  Life will find a way for those who see…

II

Life will find a way

by supplying basic needs

to those who can see.

This condensed vapor

the world found in one droplet

cold, atmospheric.

Watching the sun rise

back into daily routine

to breath in colors.

Mothers and children

hold colorful umbrellas

beautiful raincoats.

In soil for our food

water that flows through the world

particles of breath.

                                                                              Particles of Breath…

III

The purples and pinks

filter through barren branches

bring color to clouds.

Heavy rain triggers

mudslides and rockslides and floods

best to stay indoors.

Little lakes on tar

lift the rubber off the road

soaks us to the bone.

With our covered feet

we splash in all these puddles

happy in water.

Through smells of coffee

this morning embraces me

and I feel alive.

                                                                                        We splash in all these puddles….

IV

The thirst of my lawn

after the last snowfall melts

expressed dull color.

Farmers will make pits

ponds to collect rain water

this boon from Rain God.

A plant moves its leaves

towards the promise of life

roots towards moisture.

Stop to feel the rain

let’s do more than just get wet

take a deep, deep soak.

Piles of river rock

ornamental in purpose

glimmer in a flood.

                                                                                          Joy in this calmness…

V

Outside the rain pours

in falling rivers above

my home and my path.

Seasonal monsoon

many smiles through the down pour

our spirits earthbound.

In the ground roots search

beginning to feel water

soaking in to soil.

Rain can erode rock

power to chisel the stone

rain has made mountains.

                                                                                              Rain has made mountains…

VI

Joy in this calmness

a reason to celebrate

collect each raindrop.

Let the rain know you

let the grace of water in

an invitation.

Invite all your friends

celebrate this rainy day

dance until soaked through.

Like a light slow rain

these thoughts form in small droplets

to provide water.

    Ahhh. Haiku overflow. Lol. Excellent haikus my friend. Lovely imagery and pictures to go along with the writing. I specifically loved the first image, it reminded me of a spot so serene with the gentle rain coming down. Excellent work.

    Jamie , There is nothing so refreshing than a beautiful full storm when it’s been dry and hot or perhaps more soul wrenching than a three week wet , cold , long drawn out spell of rain ! I love those images , awesome writing ………Ed
