Open Link Night at d’Verse Poetics and Grace is our bartender. We do not post to prompts on OLN so the poems links are truly diverse in scope, style, subject. Come and join us and take some time to read and I hope, you will be inspired to submit a poem of your own.
Summer is winding down. The dog days of summer are slowly starting to melt into early autumn. The Japanese have over 50 – FIFTY – 50 words for rain. Today I am using one of my favorites: kisame 樹雨. This is the rain that drips from the tips of tree branches. I have used the traditional haiku for this.
summer passing – tree
branches weep rain tears
