Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
Today it was a great sunny spring day here in The Netherlands and I have done a lot in the gardens around my home. I feel muscles which I never knew I had them (smiles). As you know I am an oncology nurse and hard labor with my hands isn't what I do on a regular base, mostly my hands are caressing the bodies of my patients while I am bathing them ... so My hands are a bit sour, but well ... I can still type ...
Today we have a nice prompt to write / create haiku or haiga about rain / raindrops and I think this prompt don't need explanation.
To inspire you all I dived into my (rich) archives and found a few nice haiku and haiga to share here.
First I love to share a haiku by (my master) Matsuo Basho for this prompt:
indeed this is just
Sogi's rain shelter
As I was surfing the Internet for a nice image, photo or painting with rain I ran into a wonderful website by Dusan Djukaric a watercolor artist. I couldn't find an e-mailaddress so I hope he doesn't mind that I use a painting ...
