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.

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.
