Poetry and personal blog – Spilling my guts to strangers

spring sky
embraces the blue
well met
then there was laughter
and after sun rain

    love your blog,
    Glad to meet.

  5. so evocative. it brings me back in time. “after sun rain” is a great phrasing.

  6. NaPoWriMo was a blur! I’m glad you linked it in the study because I believe I missed it. Beautiful poem. 🙂

  7. Very nice. Thanks for posting.

  8. Hi Sweepy –

    I love it when the clear blue sky drop a quick dump of rain. Amazing how that works out. 🙂

  9. We had the exact same sky this morning, the only difference was that it is SUMMER… as of today!

  10. Well, here in London the weather is schizophrenic. It can change in a couple of minutes, or we can have rain and sunshine at the same time. This is perfectly captured with the words “sun rain”…

  11. I love it! “Well met” describing the sky embracing the blue. So simple yet so full of imagery.
    Thanks for sharing, I always enjoy your posts 🙂

  12. This describes our day in reverse. We had after rain sun, after sun rain …….and it’s midsummers day.

  13. what a stunning description of late spring/early summer in the south!

  14. I absolutely love how you frame this poem with “well met” in the middle of it. May just be my interpretation, but it makes me feel like everything comes together. Beautiful, Adriene! Thank you! =)

  15. Haiku is a great poetry art and hard to master. You certainly have done so here. Love your highly visual “and after sun rain”. Good luck with the poetry challenge.

  16. Lovely poem – will definitely come back – wish I had some “after rain sun” though 🙂

  17. oops a daisy – I have been led here by rhyme me a smiles “Smiley Sociology study”!

  18. I love the way you say so much in just so many words! Loved it!

  19. I always like how open to interpretation your poems are by the reader.

  20. Very nice! And for me, a hopeful reminder…It’s been pouring all day…

    Thanks oncevagain for the great poetry!
