if the rain doesn’t stop
it will erase

Delightful! Could you send us a small vial of rain water? We have almost forgotten what it looks like. My version is a silly little thing, reflecting the author, I suppose:
rain rain go away
before the summer’s
Consider it done. We have gallons over here…
Sensible verse? Never grow up, my friend 🙂
Or perhaps remind it why it’s here.
Lovely verse, Rachael.
Thank you. I think it might be here because it’s August and everyone would sooner it was elsewhere…
Bonjour Rachael! Oh, don’t worry: I’m sure summers are unerasable… wonderful haiku & wonderful illustration as usual. Eventhough I’m enjoying my “break” very much, I don’t forget you 🙂 Have a nice week.
Bonjour aussi dear friend, ‘en vacance’! I jest indeed – remember the English always go on about the weather…
Missing you and your beautiful words, and look forward to your return 🙂
And we could actually use a little rain here. Last summer, we got so much rain, many of the fall leaves simply dropped without even turning. I hope it lets up for you, my friend! (And beautiful poem, as always. 😉 )
Rains stopped now after about twelve hours, and all the plants and trees look revived. We needed it! Glad you like the poem, although I’m not sure it was a haiku as it didn’t make that shift on the third line, but hey ho – who cares 🙂
Noooo…don’t erase the summer! 🙂 Tis my favorite season!! ❤
It’s okay, Lorrie. The rain listened and it stopped – not before giving everything a much needed soak though ❤
I just read somewhere…without rain there’d be no rainbows…and I just LOVE rainbows 🙂
Thanks, Emily. Your appreciation is much appreciated. I liked the idea of the rain washing all the summer colour away…
