Carpe Diem Time Challenge #4 rainy days


Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

I remember that I said that I wouldn't do the weekend-meditations again, but I have given that idea a new thought. I decided to create every Saturday a Carpe Diem Time Challenge for you. That nice feature in which I challenge you to create a haiku or tanka in a short period of time.

For this weekend I have chosen the theme "rainy days". Create a haiku or tanka with that theme within 48 hours.

What a sad tone this haiku/senryu has ... but isn't that what rainy days do sometimes with us?

Well ... it's up to you  now. Create a haiku or tanka within 48 hours themed "rainy days". You can add your submission to the linking widget hereafter. Have a great weekend.

  1. We are in the throes of a drought. I would be happy for some rain.
    I honestly like the rain. My worst depressions hit in the spring when there are a lot of bright, sunny days.
