Colleen’s Weekly Tanka Tuesday Poetry Challenge Dry & Wet

The barren land, sighs

Welcomed are the stormy days

To save the parched ground

It may take a bit of time

For the terrain to be soaked

bumbershoot salute


Appearing out of nowhere

Drifting through the sky

Touching down on leaves

Sliding down thirsty grass blades

Into the parched earth

Filling dry bird baths

Beading up on fresh waxed cars

Sudden summer rain
