Angel  wings paint the sky

Rays shine down from above

Clouds mottle, drama swirls

Watchful eye peers downward

Over parched yellow fields

Orange sun yields to dusk.

Morning question: will it rain today?

image

Dark turtle swims yet

celestial inferno

foreshadows more drought.

Lately, storm clouds offer no guarantee of rain.  We’ve had no rain for at least a week and though The Weather Network predicted a 70% possibility of precipitation Friday night, none fell on our patch of ground.  Standing outside in 30 degrees, throwing precious groundwater on the garden feels totally futile.  Yes I am complaining.

P.S. I saw dark clouds all Saturday after taking this morning photo—there was no rain–not a drop.

Sky gazing–haiku

My eyes lift skyward

storm clouds conceal sun designs

trees bask in spring breeze.

In response to Ronovan Writes Weekly Haiku Challenge #88. The prompt words are ‘lift’ and ‘plan’ (design). Please visit the above prompt post to find out how easy it is to join in.  You’ll also find links to a wide variety of haiku using the prompt words.
