RonovanWrites #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge #72 Life & Give

I saw on the weather broadcast for Thanksgiving Day that northern California was finally receiving some relief from the drought. Heavy snowfall was falling in an attempt to remedy some of the worst drought conditions ever recorded in our history.

Ronovan’s words for the week are “life and give,” quite fitting for Thanksgiving week. As a tribute to this devastating drought, these words came to mind:

“Crystal Snowflakes”

Crystal Snowflakes

We can only hope that the devastation that this drought has wrought on the land will soon end. That is something that we all can be thankful for.

Thanks for stopping by to visit. I loved seeing all of you!

    In response to the need for more fluid in your area, I am hereby forwarding any and all snow we were anticipating, your way. No need for a specific address, I will merely allow the snow to have fun finding those parched areas and settle in! Cheers 🙂

  2. We are heading into a drought here in Central Victoria, Australia, I think. We don’t get snow here (not normally) and it’s hard for me to imagine a drought breaking with snow instead of rain! Love your Haiku, Colleen. Thanks for dropping in to my blog.
