A creative writer at heart, Janis was first published at age 11. Most of her poems express core issues of love, loss, trauma, and healing.
Rain Through the Eyes of Children
To embrace the rain of spring time through a child's eye is delightful. It reminds us of the forgotten freedom of play and wonderment experienced in our childhoods. The freshness of that first rain of the spring season is an invitation to recall and witness the purity of children at play.
Let us remember the blessings that come with a nice heavy rain and how it often leaves behind one of nature's favorite playgrounds.
Four haiku are presented to celebrate the joy and natural appreciation children have of rain.
Water puddles shine
Sidewalks fill with pouring rain
Lit by spring time sun
Pink Rain Coat
Pools of heavy rain
Pink coats cover little girls
Play time in spring rain
Puddles of water
Small rubber boots cover feet
Splashes of spring time
Chasing the tree's reflection
Rain makes spring time fun
