Post 8, 9, 10, 11, 12 : A Haiku a Day

Okay, my Haiku a Day has seriously taken a hit when it comes to writing or posting.  So, in order to correct some of that… A plethora of haikus. 

Pardon the lack of posts.  I’ve been terribly uninspired by haiku.
Long winter grasses
Sorrowful whistling wind
Blows my mind away

 

Wood smoke rising high
Branches and leaves burn so hot
A warmth invades me
Winter rain on roof
tinkling softly at night
Thinking of springtime
Golden glow of lamp
Shines from my window at night
Dreaming of wishes
Rain dripping dropping
Thunderous water flows down
Floating in my thoughts

 

And clearly, my thoughts are on the rain that hasn’t stopped for three days.  Three days of nonstop rain.  I’ve had enough.  I know, I could live in Seattle.  But I’m not in Seattle.  So, in a cramped house, with four people, the rain needs to stop.  At least so I can get out and walk a bit.
