Haibun - A Passing Storm

A Passing Storm

Before rain, leaves turn upside down and
silvery as if presaging lightning. i pause in
stillness...silence...the wait for thunder.

windshift --
tarnished clouds gather as one
and break

Then, as quickly... trees drip greenness until
slow enough to become droplets... in a golden
calm - another without waiting.

after the storm --
an origami crane

floats on a stream
