subtle pink splashes
petals curl around rain drops
wet blooms sweep the streets

fragile pink blossoms
buffeted by breezy gusts
confetti flutters

Of the two i like the second better. The image of strong gusts and confetti go well together.

@ Brian
My star magnolia is in bloom currently and every Spring it reminds me of the value of haiku. First one was a rainy day - 2nd a breezy one. I suppose there may be one or two more before it's done. It's an absolute beauty of a tree which brings me joy year round.

Thanks for stopping by

Who frets the weather...

thanks to 2
Bea .. I've never denied that I'm susceptible to things that bloom. What causes me grief is when they don't thrive in my care .. unless they are forsythia that needed moving.

whipping - what a wonderful comment ... thank you
