When it Pours – Haiku

so when it finally rained, it was a blessing.)

  1. I am so thankful you are receiving much needed rainfall and I hope it continues to soak into the ground to help California’s Thirst.. While it rains there, at last the Sun is shining here these last few days.. 🙂

    • Thanks, Sue, I hope it continues, too. I’m not sure if we’re out of the drought around here, but I’m sure more would benefit. Other parts of the state are still very dry. And I’m glad you have sunshine now, too! It’s been crazy with such opposite extremes in different areas…xoxo

  2. It seems like this winter the weather is messed up everywhere, too much snow, too much rain, too much cold, too much drought. I hope spring returns us all to normal.

    • Thanks so much, Diane! It does feel refreshing and hopefully, we’ll get more, too. I hope spring comes soon for you, though, because I know you’re looking forward to its arrival! 🙂 ♥

  3. hasn’t rained here since December, but that’s seasonal not a drought. However once we hear the rainbirds singing and we have an early downpour like last night time to write a haiku – however you have captured it so well, and I’m watching mi esposa sitting reading in the garden, that I think I’ll try to capture her under a blue sky instead.
