a day of dark rain

a foreboding sound echoes in a thunderstorm.... mourners at a grave -- a torrent of rain muffles the sound of crying.... watching crows scatter -- one wet crow hunches on branch of the brittle oak.... dark clouds hover low ~ ~ ~ ~ For Skat's "Dark Rain" haiku contest

Your images of this graveside service are awesome, Carrie! Outstanding haiku series. Why does it always seem to rain when people we love are buried? I can't remember one family funeral ever occurring on a sunny day. You made a great connection for me with this poem and it goes to my favorites. Do you remember the song "Here Comes the Rain Again"? Your poem reminds me of it. Terrific entry for the contest! Love, Carolyn
