Aitch Two Oh!


No rain all summer, until a couple of days ago. At last, at last, the skies opened up and water poured out.

The drops of water on the deck made beautiful rings on the wet surface. (Well, I guess they look pretty ordinary, but I was overjoyed to see them.) Ask me again in January if I still love rain.

For you–haiku.

 Thirsty plants revive,

Wildfires sizzle and burn out,

Rain pelts down on them.

  3. Thanks for sending some rain (at least to look at). The dry summer weather still “rages” here.


  4. Unfortunately, Hurricane Florence will probably give us more rain than we ever wanted after such a dry summer.

  5. I like rain too, but only if it’s not often. One time in a month is enough for me.

  9. I love this celebration of rain, Anneli — lovely photo of the rain, and descriptive haiku too. Rain is such a gift from the heavens.

  10. Rain is so beautiful in your photos. And in fact, when we don’t get it, rain becomes like a mirage in the desert and is SO enjoyed when it finally is released from the heavens. We had a day like that on Tuesday – from Hurricane Florence – and its exciting and yet frightening when it comes down that hard and fast. Love your haiku.
