Haiku – Rain (Sky Obscures All)

Haiku – Rain (Sky Obscures All)

The rain is constant

Grey paints sky obscuring all

Day falls back to black

  1. Annie you are brilliant! Love this one especially. I log on and have have to get caught up because you post so much :), but it is worth it and I love reading your thoughts put into words and pictures. Thank you for sharing!


    1. Thank you Mark – high praise indeed! I hope my new category system on the front page will help you out a bit in finding things to read at your leisure! I don’t always post this much (usually just 1 or 2 a day), but two things have happened – In tidying up the site I have gotten inspired – In teaching myself about some of the traditional forms of Japanese poetry, I have started to see poems everywhere. I am writing in bed when I wake up, on the bus, at odd times through the day. I have bought a pile of tiny notebooks and carry them everywhere. Katauta – Love (8), that you also commented on today, were words that flowed to me as I closed my eyes last night – I could not go to sleep without writing them down (in case I lost them).

      1. Glad you are taking the time to write them done and share. You have piqued my interest in the Japanese forms and hope to look into it when I have some time.


      2. I highly recommend it Mark – I have been writing poetry most of my life and discovering these has honestly made me look at everything differently – I see poems everywhere now and I find that the more I write the more I see the more I write!
