Rain (A Trio of Haiku)

Rain like stair rods fall.

Drenching, soaking , flooding all.

Cleansing all the pain.


Pitta Patta  comes  the rain

Banishes dust ,gone

Waking seeds to life again.


Jump for joy, splash, wet, your legs

Storm clouds gather over head

Smash,smash all your  eggs.

    Very nice. I’ve always loved the rain Willow. When I drove tractor-trailer, it had sleeper berth. The roof was fibreglass and when I would go to sleep, hearing the rain on the roof was so peaceful. It was like my own personal cocoon while the world got a shower. All the trees and plants soaking up their life force while I remained dry and cozy. I like to walk in the rain too – so cleansing. Thanks for the Haiku – well done Willow.

        Hi Willow! I’m just looking at your time stamp and it says 4:20 am. It is only 4:20 in the middle of the Atlanttic. Maybe your computer has not done the last time change – which would put you some where in western Africa or England. Just curious

    Ottawa, Canada. It’s a little after 2 am here. If you check the time stamp on your comment on this post, you’ll see a time stamp 2 hrs earlier. Must be where the server is. Good Morning!

      Hi and good morning to you too Sir. It is raining here soft summer rain after a week of hot dry sun (well hot for us.) I just fed the birds and the garden smelt so fresh and sweet. X

    I love the sound of the rain’s pitter patter not the vicious kind. I live in the lower level of this house and don’t get to hear the hear the rain much anymore. I like your trio of Haikus. Each one unlike the next, each setting a different tone. 🙂
