April Haiku #5217

I can't seem to stop writing poetry or reading poetry. I think it is safe to say I love poetry and I love sharing great poetry with others.


Through moving grey clouds

I spot a patch of blue

sometimes quickly lost.

I pondered the light

as it vanished into black

storm clouds present rain.

The cold in my bones

freezes my will to move on

but I must leave home.

Into each droplet

to travel where one must go

though the wind will fight.

Sometimes the waiting

is the perfect solution

when facing grey clouds.

When grey turn to white

then the white fades to light blue

desire is reborn.

Seasons of living

one moment by one moment

has left me here, still.

Oh yes, those moments when the weather prompts us to reconsider where we are going, and why, or if we should maybe just relax and enjoy the day. Perfect Haiku material Jamie.

It is bone chilling damp, and windy here today, no blue sky in sight. Takes courage to get going. I just realized that was Haiku too, too funny.
