Haiku Friday #98 - Sky Watch #22 Rainy Daze

Earlier today
Happily Retired Gal
shared a 'rain' collage

with another 'ku

about stormy weather in
my beach neighborhood ...

here more skies appear
in a dif'rent collage with
variable skies

(Click to embiggen the collage for better viewing)

Raindrops cling to the
lemons on my tree ... Molly
hoping for a friend

to visit & play.
Weary of staying inside
during the rainstorm.

Funny how this 'lab'
water-loving pooch avoids
raindrops at all costs

but will romp in surf
and lie down in puddles she
finds. I think it's odd

but I understand
it's quite common among her
canine relatives.

See my other Haiku Sky Watch post & collage
at Happily Retired Gal today.

Very nice & different - I really like the collage!!!

Momisodes said...

LOL! That is too funny :) I suppose having water fall uncontrollably on top of you is scarier ;)

I love the collage and sky shots!

Beautiful ..somewhere it isn't snowing? wow....LOL

SandyCarlson said...

I love the collage and the poem. I too had a lab who refused rain but loved water that was already lying there. As I read your delightful poem I had the thought that dogs like to choose their water rather than be subjected to it. Bath time was no thrill for my pup, either!

I can smell the lemons of your poem, my friend. Thank you for these warm and refreshing images.

"Raindrops cling to the
lemons on my tree...that is a gorgeous line. Merry Christmas. :)

Molly said...

Interesting Haiku about rain and a dog with one of my favorite names.

Joyce said...

The reflection of the palm tree on the wet sidewalk is my favorite in your collage. It typifies warm, non-gloomy California rains for me. :)

Michelle said...

Beautiful sky and I love the palm trees. Makes me think that I could really use a warm vacation. Thanks for sharing.

Maithri said...

So Tenderly written

and beautiful pictures...

Images of Palm trees always get to me... being born in the tropics,

Thanks for the warmth and peace you bring to the world,


Patti said...

I love Haiku, but alas I cannot write it.

Your beautiful sky shots make a cool collage.
I'm looking our the window at heaps of snow, then looking back at your palm trees.

Quite a contrast!

Karen said...

My eye was immediately drawn to the pic of the lemons--oh how I envy you that lemon tree! I've thought about trying to grow one inside, but we really don't get much sun in the house, plus, I'd have to pollinate it myself--I guess I'll just have to content myself with your photos!

Lovely photos -- and I envy the lemon tree! (Now I have Peter, Paul and Mary stuck in my head!)
