spring rain

Carpe Diem Tan Renga Challenge Month May 17th: "spring rain" by Ozaki Hosai (1885-1926)



spring rain:
parting on the beach
a boat and an umbrella

the boat sails away
umbrella gives chase

spring rain
umbrellas unfolding
across the plains
as farmers race
to plant the fields

    1. My dad's tractor, well before the days of air conditioned cabs, had an umbrella!
