Let The Moment Begin


a small raindrop
holds the sky
just before…

rain falls
a million ripples
stir the pond

the last drop
descends caught
by a lily pad

distant thunder
lifts the clouds
a chance to breathe

This artist is new to me and I’m rather fascinated with his work. Yet another reason to love the PAD Challenge! I probably never would have come across his work had I not been searching WikiArt.org for paintings tagged with “rain.”

Words: haiku, c.b.w. 2015

Part of the 2015 November Poem A Day Chapbook Challenge (Poetic Asides via Writer’s Digest) for the November 30 Prompt: let the moment begin

Challenge Complete! 🙂
