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.

At the end of each month I’ll gather up the haikus in the “Haiku Comments” that meet the criteria and pick one at random in a drawing, and send the winner of the drawing one of my e-books: your choice of “Haiku for the Seasons I”, or “Haiku for the Seasons II.”

Today’s topic is “CHANGE” Here is my haiku:

for five billion years
the earth’s been remodeling
and its not done yet
