Haiku Friday: Rain

GardnersToday my haiku is from August 7th of my new book A Haiku Book of Days, for Gardeners, Tree-Huggers, and Other Nature Lovers, one of a 7-book series. The topic for today is: “Rain”

the sound of water
that smell of rain on dry earth
it’s time to wake up

It’s Haiku Friday again. For the past twenty years or so, it has been my practice to write one haiku every day. Every Friday I share a haiku here, about whatever topic I happen to choose. I invite you to write a haiku on this topic too, and share it with me and the readers of this blog. Just write it in the Comments below. The only rules are: 1) your haiku must be about the named topic; 2) you must follow the 5-7-5 syllable format; 3) no obscenities or hate (I will delete those). That’s it.

You can purchase this book on Amazon here.

  1. nature’s percussion
    raindrops striking the window
    become musical

    paradiddles and
    flamacues of rain among
    flashes and rumbles

    booming echoing
    harder the rain pounds out each
    fresh syncopation

    until the drummer
    has finished and the song of
    the rain is now done
