The prompt words:

Lightning & Rain

I came up with 4… 3 haiku and one tanka.. The obvious subjects would be weather…

rain 1

The feeling of rain
Quenching a thirst that’s unknown
After lightning strikes

Ritu 2016

rain

When it rains it pours
Lightning will never strike twice
So the sayings go

Ritu 2016

rain 3

A flash of lightning
After thunder rolls above
The Heavens open
Intense, the relief of rain
Easing pressures in the sky

Ritu 2016

Then one not about the state of the world outside…

Rain runner

Like lightning, she ran
Compliments rained upon her
Victory was hers

Ritu 2016

Apologies if there are any errors, I am posting this as a tired mummy/teacher!
