Summer Rain ~ ryokuu

Toni (in the Garden) invites us to write a poem about rain
The Japanese have 50+ words for rain ~ I chose ryokuu, summer rain

take me
in the rain
under a tree
you
me

no thunder
no flash of light
falling rain
the soundtrack

lost whispers 
muffled moans 
under a tree
you
me

  7. Slow soft summer rain makes for a quiet backdrop for an intimate summer repose. Makes me wish I was one of your characters.

  8. Make me wonder why, in England, rain is only rain?! Do we lack a poetic way of looking at life, I wonder?
