It's Raining ~ Haiku





Rain glorious rain
I hear it on my window
Morning dawns anew

*******
Can they be alike
Flooding, damaging downpours
Soothing cleansing rain

*******

Hell hath no fury
Like a river distended
Beyond its floodplain

*******

It sure looks like rain
Ready to jump in puddles
Inhibition gone

*******
Parked in a downpour
Her breasts timidly exposed 
Gentle hands fumble

  1. i love playing in the mudpuddles and dancing in the rain...it brings life as much as it takes...and i have lived through a few floods, so yes it can be such a destructive force...

  4. You get that feeling of refreshing and cleansing, really makes you touch and experience rain. Excellent.

  5. Want a wonderful series of haiku, Helen. Rain can be such a lovely experience. I think that in front of puddles, we are still the children we once were.

  8. Wonderful rain-inspired haiku, Helen! My favorite is the "Hell has no fury...." I think many people in those rivers' paths would agree. So nice to see you in PJ again.

  13. Is this one of those puzzles, like which one is different? Yes. Verse five should not be there. It deserves its own story with its own plot, otherwise we are left wondering.... :-)

  14. I enjoyed reading these haikus Helen. Glimpses of moments. Together they fit as a series of thoughts on a rainy day. Thanks for visiting my blog even though I had not posted it yet (I forgot after getting here a day early!)

  15. in your haiku string there is yin and yang; the floods - the devastation, the puddles - the innocence

  16. I have been in dangerous rain and nice rain, in floods and puddles, It is so much better to dance and hug in the rain then to have to clean up the wet and the mud and worry about what happened. But rain will do what rain will do and there is no control except the after damage control

  18. What a nice series of 'takes' on rain ... from the clinically scientific to the playful to the sensuous to the hopeful ... a fun read today!

  21. I love the haiku specially the part of no inhibitions ~ I feel like skipping on those puddles ~

    Happy weekend Helen ~

  22. I've always been thinking along the lines of Haiku 2. Rain, like everything else, is a two-faced thing. To some, it brings damage, and to others, it brings growth and refreshment. I enjoyed reading your haiku(s). They are good accompaniments to this lovely afternoon. :-)
