Spring Rains

Thunder rumbles across the sky

Flash of lightening catches my eye

A spring rainstorm is drawing near

Seek shelter before it is here, and you’ll stay dry.

Gentle rain soaks into the ground

Puddles for birds to gather round

An encircling rainbow hug

The low slow rasping of a bug, the only sound.


The Sunday Challenge at Real Toads was to write a Florette.  It is at least two stanzas of four lines.  The syllable requirements are 8, 8, 8, and 12.  the rhyme scheme is a, a, b, a.  In addition, the 8th syllable of the fourth line rhymes with the end of the 3rd line.  If I’ve confused you, check out the much better explanation at Real Toads.
