Haibun #12

Rain today, a steady drizzle developing into drumming on the roof and rushing gutters. A sleep song on the roof, as Langston sings. The dandelions that were smiling yesterday are all curled up. We pulled a few more books off the shelves and drew in closer for another poem or two.

wiffle ball in puddle

All day rain
drizzle, downpour, then wind -
flotsam in the gutter

Whiffle ball is awfully slide-y in puddles that big.

However, rain in YOUR neck of the woods looks gorgeous, as opposed to in mine!

So excited about this series... can you feel me over here cheering?

Just lovely work.

Thanks Shelley! It is a real exercise and I am getting a lot out of it! T, your photos of rain look just as good from over here!

This is so good. Andi, I love your month of haiku/haibun. I haven't had a chance to read all of these until now. They are beautiful.
