April 24, 2015
Prompt: moment

fallen flowers
float for a moment
morning breeze

clouds roll overhead
gravel crunches
beneath my feet

rainclouds break apart
just in time
for sunset

April 25, 2015
Prompt: across the sea

Queen Mary’s Garden

June’s first rain
settles in the center
of a white rose

Triton’s fountain
sprinkles the pond
along with the rain

grey clouds loom
over a path covered
with rose petals

April 26, 2015
Prompt: Shakespearean Words

I. Blush

clouds blush
at the sight
of an early moon

II. Moonbeam

midnight rain
drops catch the glow
of a full moon

II. Radiance

black water
reflects the stars
flickering fire
