TJ’s Household Haiku – Rain & Shiver

TJ’s back with his haiku prompts:

Nature reserve Perth

Rain & Shiver

I went with a 3/5/3 Haiku first…

Leaves shiver
With the weight of rain
Drops falling

Ritu 2017

Then a tanka

The rain falls in sheets
I’m wet and shivering
Natures playing games again
Typical British summer

Ritu 2017

And the traditional 5/7/5 English haiku

A raindrop trickles
Sending shivers down my spine
Like your feathered touch
