Haiku Reflections: A Rainy Day Haiku


rainy day haiku

We are getting some much needed rain, here in BC.

This rainy day haiku that I previously posted at my Happy Break blog (now discontinued)  came to mind.

How’s your weather?

Anyone know what kind of flowers these are? I love them!

Happy Wednesday! 🙂

  1. The photo is beautiful and so are the words. We also got a real good rain this morning. And with the last snow storms in March, April and May we now have very full reservoirs, lakes and rivers overflowing. I am ready to post my entry for this week’s word prompt ‘transplant’. Finally. 🙂

  2. So soft and pretty, Geraldine. It makes all the rain we’ve been getting for the last two days seem much nicer! 🙂

  3. rain feeds the flowers
    which we feast on visually…smiles.
    nice and delicate

  4. Another wonderful spring haiku. And these flowers are so pretty. Don’t know the name of them though.

  5. I’ve no idea, I’ve never seen this before,but it sure is pretty, our weather well the rain has finally cease and we’re getting hot and humid summer weather, can you say 30C?:)

  6. Definitely a sight to savour. This is going to drive me mad, I know the flower but can’t put a name to it.

  7. Hi Joyce, Thanks for your kind words. And thanks again for an intriguing prompt at Woven Dreams this week! You had me thinking on this one. 😉

    Hi Talon, I love how flowers look after the rain, so fresh and beautiful, thanks Talon!

    Hi Brian, Indeed! A feast for the senses.

    Hi Joe, I’m not good with plant names but these do look familiar.

    Hi Lorraine, Wow, that’s hot, tooooo hot! I hope that weather doesn’t cross the country, any time soon. 😦

    Hi Val, Does Lady Slipper seem like a possibility? That’s one I thought of. Whatever these are, I love them.

    Thanks for stopping by, G

  8. Nope this region Ottawa-Hull-Gatineau-Aylmer, what is called the Outaouais had the most humidity in Canada, and the coldest winter except for up North

  9. What a lovely flower! Your haiku is so lovely. It evokes the beauty of all those flowers waking up after a rain storm and the ground being so green a lush. 🙂

  10. I love the photo and how it evokes the richness of a jungle in the rain season…
    It keeps raining here in Montreal. I love rain but when summer is so short I kind of feel cheated when there’s more rain than sunshine. 🙂
