Haikai Challenge #151: first (autumn) storm (hatsu arashi) / Darkness (Yami)

 

First Autumn Storm

Dense saunal mist begs
dark clouds’ rumbled promises –
buckets poured gain trust.
Grass greens as we hear its thrum,
Inhaling cool autumn breeze.

Write the haikai poem of your choice (haiku, senryu, haibun, tanka, haiga, renga, etc.) that alludes to either the first (autumn) storm (hatsu arashi), Darkness (Yami), or both!

  1. I can feel that transition, the clearing of the air. It fits the weather we had today – mid-90s and clammy, until a storm moved in just before dinner, high winds and all, and left us with evening temps in the low 70s.

    1. It usually does here also. It poured and poured yesterday. I took 2 buckets and kept filling them for the houseplants. Two full buckets are sitting just inside the door for later watering. It hasn’t rained like that in a long long time.
