a haiku chain about rain for the Writer's Cramp--for Virginia Tech
Half-Mast


grey ribbons of rain
twining around the flagpole
drowning Old Glory


perhaps she should fly
permanently at half-mast
for present sorrow


not water enough
to sluice away the world's pain
when it rains, it pours


Written for: "The Writer's Cramp
