billowing clouds

It’s always a delight when a new issue of Sketchbook is released. Sketchbook was one of the first journals I successfully submitted to, way back in Spring 2010, and I’ve had haiku appear in every issue since. The kigo for May/June was “cloud peaks” / “billowing clouds” . Here are my three:

a flock of swallows

a fire-breathing dragon
morphs into a sheep…
billowing clouds

billowing clouds
the first raindrops
hit the pavement
