in the gravel
along the railroad tracks--
pussy willows

    going
    over the wall--
    morning glories

    April showers -
    attacked, one lonely tulip
    survives the morning rain.

    James, good ku, I wonder if you need 'attacked'?

    peace

    Kate, thank you. You are right. I'm trying too hard to find exactly 17 syllables - I need to get comfortable with less if the moment requires it... ;-)

    Blessings, James.

    smiling in spring rain
    yellow slicker shiny wet
    school bus late again

    beneath a dreary sky
    a broken window, beneath --
    a buttercup

    sea of weeds
    from here to the high rise
    shaken by the wind

    busy tokyo street
    a bright red rose lies
    crushed

    cattails
    at the edge of the pond
    only "sound of water"
