they furl like cloud puffs ...
morning glory look-alikes
loving rainy days

Written for the prompt at Carpe Diem My Favorite Haiku by ... #2 Chiyo-Ni's Morning Glory

asano eikou yoku baketto entanguru watashiha mizuwo motomeru

morning glory!
the well bucket-entangled,
I ask for water
© Chiyo-Ni

This haiku is a beauty because of Chiyo-Ni's feeling towards the Morning Glory which entangled the well bucket. She sees the beauty of the Morning Glory and she doesn't want to ruin it. So she turns to one of our neighbors and asks for water.

Here is my response on this beauty by Chiyo-Ni:

Morning Glories
have overgrown the wooden fence
I take the back one

The thing I like about morning glories, aside from their beautiful blue color, is the way they grow in a cascade that is deep enough to crawl into and hide or wear like a cape.
