National Poetry Month - rain on new leaves haiku
the first time
it rained on these open leaves;
learning to dance
the ruby rose can bloom;
shocking red thorns
It rained a lot the last couple days and I grabbed a few minutes in the morning to take photos. These new leaves have only been open a week or so; this is their very first rain shower. They're babies. By the end of summer they will be old pros, survivors of every chewing creature to ramble by. Today they are newly baptised and bouncing in surprise.
My blog is featured over at Jama Rattigan's alphabet soup blog in her Poetry Potluck series. Go see how nice a table she lays out! I am bowled over at her gracious hospitality.

Ooh - love those new haiku. Especially the prickly rose one!
Your spread at Jama's was DELICIOUS!
I love the droplet in the picture that's being balanced by the tip of the new leaf (or bud?)!!
Andi, Exquisite photos and haiku, as usual. I love the "learning to dance" especially.
P.S. Are you going to ALA? We're planning a Poetry Princess dinner Friday night and are hoping you will be able to swing the trip. Plans are underway. I want to meet you in person!
Love your post at Jama's place....
Thanks for these happy comments! I am loving the back and forth this month.
Laura I am still trying to figure that out - sorry to leave you hanging. I'll be in touch I promise!
I know what you mean. It's hard to get it all figured out with logistics and everything. Make the decision in your own time. Whatever works for you. Just wanted to update you on what's going on in case you haven't had a chance to read our recent Poetry Princess emails:>) And also to say that I would love to meet you in person if it does work out for you!
