Rain haiku

24 02 2018


Besides a full moon
from my window I adore
soft raindrops at dawn.

No longer soft rain
tumbles into the garden,
pounds the soggy ground.

‘Twas a brief downpour.
Thank goodness we’ve had enough
of all-day-all-night.

Mistaken again!
Morning showers ‘til seven
when the sun rises.

Rain from Kaua‘i

27 03 2013

From the beach this morning, this is what rain coming from the direction of Kaua‘i looked like. We have flash flood advisories. The wind has changed and big raindrops are starting to fall at the studio. The clouds are hanging low and down into the valley, not moving, covering any views of the waterfalls. I bet it’s raining already in the middle of the island. I cancelled my class en plein air in favor of everyone staying indoors to work on some unfinished paintings. I love the light of stormy weather, but I and my oil paint prefer to stay dry. 😉 Here’s hoping for a fairer-weather day tomorrow!
