Heavy Rain

(May Day, Summer’s Arrival)

Heavy rain;

A planted seed rises

With the water.

This flooded hokku was composed by Donna Ferrell.

The photo of the flooded field can be found here.

According to the ancient hokku calendar or natural calendar, today, May Day, is the first day of summer, which was a highly celebrated day, showing respect for the return of the sun, with its light and warmth.
