    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



  • 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.

    • Rachael Charmley says:

      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. 😉 )

    • Rachael Charmley says:

      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 🙂
