2107



clouds emptied of rain -
the radiance of Poui
in its aftermath



coolness of the night -
to quiet sliver of light
upward gaze to moon

Its Ascension Sunday, and yesterday, Saturday, we had a nice cooling shower of rain during the day; a preface of our rainy Season which should start in June.

kaeru kari asu wa izuku no tsuki ya miru
departing geese
where will you moon-gaze
tomorrow?

For all the sadness of rain it keeps us alive just as the sun does. Only we can change if we have a mind to.

When the clouds empty themselves of rain, so many things change, sometimes for the worse, but often for the better.

The graceful - almost ethereal - feeling of these haiku, read beautifully together. The first one sent me off goggling images of poui - a stunning tree. Lovely writing, Gillena.
