Haiku Friday-Spring Storms

Haiku Friday

The Thunder Rolls In
Lightning Flashes All Around
Hail Clutters Dirt

Clouds Cast Grey Shadows
A Double Rainbow Appears
Rain Drops Show Themselves

*I had a hard time determining if the word "hail" is one syllable or two. I even tried looking it up to no avail. Today I chose to use the word as two syllables. If anyone knows otherwise, let me know.

For more Haiku Friday, visit A Mommy Story and/or Playgrounds Are No Place For Children.

Beautiful, seasonal haiku.
According to my Webster's, the schwa sound may or is sometimes voiced, which would make it two syllables in that case. :)

I LOVE your header, by the way!

Precious indeed is her song ;--)
Such fun videos!

Amazing rainbow
‘capture’ in the photograph …
Expressive Haiku!

I don't know about the syllabication of 'hail' ... but who's counting anyway? Thanks for visiting Sacred Ruminations this morning. I do Haiku Friday on each of my blogs. Here's the other link if you have time to check it out:

Hugs and blessings,
