True Blue Haiku: Hailstones.

Dainty Hailstones drip
Shimmering like diamonds
Across the azure.

"Shimmering like diamonds".
I remember looking out at my lawn after a hailstorm several years ago, It certainly did sparkle!

More precious than any mined stone!
Isn't nature wonderful? :)

Very well done!

One hail storm back in the late 90's in my area lasted twenty minutes and covered the ground like a snow.

It was definitely a freak storm but since I believe in Man-made climate change we will have more.

G' Day RIVER & YGRAINE: Mother nature certainly is full of surprises.

G' Day BEACH BUM: We had a hail storm late last year which actually sandblasted the driveway clean.

Lovely words Windsmoke, dainty hailstones are beautiful, unfortunately we do everything BIG in WA and they're more like 'golfballs' not so jewel like haha!

We haven't had hail here in a number of years. I can remember one in country NSW which shattered windscreens and windows. Nothing dainty about it at all. Just the same I also remember storms like the one you described. Thanks for the reminder.

Those shimmering diamonds made the hood of my car look like a golf ball!

G' Day GRACE & THE ELEPHANTS CHILD: Yep, they can really be whoppers sometimes.

G' Day LYNN: I'm glad you thought so.

G' Day PEARL: Hailstones certainly can do some damage to the modern day car because the metal body is so thin not like the cars of 40 - 50 years ago.
