haiku - red

black clouds
grumble with thunder -
red umbrellas

*******************
willows lean
over a red painted boat -
rain dimpled river

Two brightly visual haiku. As polona points out,the red is beautifully placed.

Beautifully worded haiku. The color has a strong, vivid presence. I linger among the willow and take a seat on the red boat feeling the rain against my skin. Thanks for sharing. Have a nice night.
