Purple Droplets of Rain

The soft sound of rain
Exquisite purple droplets
The jacaranda tree weeps
Wet purple kisses
 A welcome shower of love
Royal messengers of Spring

    I've seen the magnificent jacaranda trees only on the images they give on Google... sad to say. Never seen plants SO purple! Your messengers of Spring seem much more beautiful than ours... great sedoka!

    Eileen, :-) I'm taking this moment to wish you an early Happy Mother's day. Just in case, I can't hang around the soup past Saturday Night. May you enjoy all the blessings a mother engraves in our hearts. About your poem: a very nice and soft image... love the gift left behind... LINDA

Very sweet of you! Yes, Sara is a dear who is very talented. I'm sure you'll make her happy. Love to Harry!

    Dear Eileen, Good afternoon, although it is probably evening where you are. i know the Jacaranda tree is native to South America but I would say You live in one of the countrys that surround the Mediterrainien seaor you live somewhere in Africa. I have read this Poem 20 times and still do not know what or how to write a Sedoka. I truely like the words and format of this Poem. You are very Inspiring . I may try to write a Poem for You.Respectfully, Flipper.

    It is evening where I am....Close to midnight. Yes...I can the sea from the university where I teach. It is up on a hill. Please feel free to do so! :) Look forward to reading it. BTW...if you go to the forms link on the top of the page...and then to the letter S...you will get to read up on Sedoka. Want a laugh? I thought I was writing a Tanka! What a joke! We all learn.

    I never meant to cause you any sorrow. I never meant to cause you any pain. I only wanted to one time see you laughing. I only wanted to see you laughing in the purple rain. Purple rain, purple rain. Purple rain, purple rain.

    I knew before you added that little bit at the end that you were "singing" purple rain for me! Love that song by Prince! Did you check out my link so you could "see" the trees, Richard! They are so lovely. I put another pic up on FB. This actually happened. I paused from my morning walk to get rained on...Richard, how does one express oneself when words are not adequate? This sedoka does do it...It was an eternal moment!

    Thanks, Anne Lise. I went camera mad two days ago and kept snapping away at that profusion of purple glory. They little flowers rained on me...how can one possibly soak all that beauty in? Have a great weekend. Hugs
