CD: Samidare (Midsummer Rain)

Carpe Diem #219



midsummer rain
birds splash in cool puddles
chirping their joy

***
so many rainy days
huddling on wooden porch
watching ducks at play

  7. Lovely set Maggie. I love the first the most. It's a nicely crafted haiku as it is meant to be.

  10. Thank you, everyone! The one image Kristjaan posted for one of Jane Reichhold's haiku with the shade on the wooden porch inspired the second one.

  14. Lucky splashing birds! No rain in sight here in the Sonoran Desert, where the current temp is 111 degrees Fahrenheit, under perfectly clear skies!
