2146


these wet leaves -
some of the morning rain held
in reserve

Went out for breakfast this morning with my daughter, we haven't had a morning out just the two of us for quite some time.

As well - a little serving of Basho
A monk sips morning tea,
it's quiet,
the chrysanthemum's flowering.

I think we need to reserve a bit of rain, to help us in times of drought.

Martin Kloess said...

Have to admit, the commentary brought the haiku alive.

One of the joys of life is to observe nature getting on with its business of surviving its way.

Another wonderful post - your haiku: a wise little metaphor, I think.

Love Basho, Love the water droplets, Love your haiku. My daughter is coming soon from Las Vegas and I, too, will be enjoying her company. Been awhile.

Diane Mayr said...

Nice, Gillena! I like the way you've arranged the text down the page and varied the font color. It reinforces the fall of rain.

Magical Mystical Teacher said...

So much said here about rain in so few words! Lovely!
