sky friday + international "light" haiku day

For sky friday: a sunrise moment from earlier this week, with clouds moving in.

And more skies:
In celebration of International Haiku Poetry Day, April 17, 2015, the haiku foundation is organizing an “EarthRise Rolling Haiku Collaboration”. Everyone is invited to join with a "light" haiku written at dawn at their time.

The collab is happening directly online, here's the webpage: EarthRise Rolling Haiku Collaboration

Below are my contributions, the first is from dawn:

single rain drops 
sunrise without color 
still the blackbird sings 

And the second from noon, noted while waiting to be picked up at the oncology centre after the next chemo session:

a blue bottle rolls 
in the wind
all the things 
that wait for us

Take a sky photo and/or write a "light" haiku to join the round-the-world collabs:
