careening seaward—
cacophony of gulls

beautiful - I love photos of clouds. There's so many things you can use them for (or is it that they use us?).

Andrew,

Thanks. The photo is by NOAA. I am a cloud fanatic myself.

Lovely -- I'm just up this morning and going to the site your picture leaped out at me.

behind closed curtains
the rain is beating down

Good morning Denis. This is a lovely rich haiku, full of senses and sensory suggestion. Heavy but floating.

Gerald, I love your senryu!

Hi Denis,
I love this haiku...so rich on the tongue...and rich with imagery, even without the photo!
