Haiku 248, 252, 264, 265, 269: The Theme is Rain

You may remember some of these haiku – they are recently written in one or another session of the Installment Plan Poetry Marathon. But here is their official presentation to the world…

248.
Please yourself, drizzle –
Wash out the girls’ softball game.
Sit out there alone.
3/31/17

252.
One million seedpods
landed on the dry planet
and waited for rain
4/14/17

264.
Red roof tiles slick up
turn silver backs to the sky
in the pounding rain
5/5/17

265.
Deep red turned silver
in the dark-gray-day drizzle
Shining slick roof tiles
5/5/17

269.
Double life drainpipe
removes rain and supplies birds
with a building site
5/17/17

  1. I do love those very visual poems about the roof tiles but the haiku that speaks most to me today is the seedpod one. I love that idea of patiently waiting for possibility and potential.

  2. I see opened seedpods all over the place, and now we are getting to acorn season and walnuts. I really enjoy thinking that each one of those, well, we don’t know, but someday it could be a giant tree above us, when today we are looking at it before it even got started. There is something so exciting about this idea to me.
