waiting for a break in clouds ~ tan renga

Carpe Diem Tan Renga Wednesday – White Crane asks us to use
a haiku by Kikaku (in blue) to create a tanka.

how I wish to call
a white crane from Fukei,
but for this cold rain.
               Kikaku

waiting for a break in clouds
to deliver good fortune

A crane is said to symbolize good fortune, balance, and happiness.
