A rainy Tuesday Haiku

A Rainy Tuesday Haiku
Seattle Rain

pattering outside

gutters groan quite loudly

blessing my rain gear 

Well, quite the rain to wake up to. Not monsoon like, but still rather heavy. 

I hope your Tuesday meets all your goals and desires. 

A Piano: Tonight’s Haiku

gentle touch of keys
movement of notes through the air
echoes of children

Today we journeyed down into Seattle’s University district. We ducked into the University Heights Community Center, which, decades ago was the elementary school my father and several of my uncles attended. I considered the thousands of children who passed through, their hopes, dreams and heartaches. Thus I connected to my history.
