A Blessing to Count

storm clouds sail away
but winds usher in changes…
     bright arc kisses sky

colors lure creatures
honey bees and hummingbirds…
     sip fragrant petals

I stare mesmerized
gray day makes way for light, joy…
     a blessing to count


*Entry for Carol’s “Haiku Weekend” contest on rainbows
