five raindrop senryu
five raindrop senryu
father’s raindrop rule:
oil rises to the top
be extra careful
on desert highways
drivers don’t know what to do
daunted by raindrops
my spoiled canines
feel innocuous raindrops
scratch to come inside
raindrops mixed with snowy flakes
raindrops falling in my head
moving to next theme…
The prompt for today is: RAINDROPS

Good to see you and everyone here ~ Excellent haiku ~ variety ~thanks, namaste
I like these very much. Verses one and four,
reminded me of my father’s words of warnings
which I hope now echo in my adult children’s ears,
and the grandkids too.

Awesome series of senryu Zongrik. I love especially the last one, but the other four are great also.
Thank you for being part of my new haiku challenge “Tackle It Tuesday”. You’re so welcome and please share the fun.
I love the images in this poem. Well done. Thanks for stopping by!
LOL … I can relate to number 3 … mine don’t like rain either!! 😀
None of my dogs have ever liked rain, guess they didn’t like things falling on there head..haha
Your second senryu describes Southern California drivers perfectly: They don’t know how to handle themselves on a freeway when it’s slick with rain.
Are There No Raindrops?
Lovely 5 raindrop senryu.
My dog hates rain too – but I love to hear the pitter patter of rain on the window – thanks for visiting my blog – Jane UK
That was very interesting!
A terrific series of haiku. I just brought my dog in out of the rain!
This was certainly a creative use of the prompt raindrops. The second one was my favorite.
A lovely series, giving us some timely warnings.
I love rain poetry. 🙂
Thanks especially for the first one; I hadn’t thought about that. I think the third one is my favorite.
You have a typo in “conditions.”
thanks. i fixed it. i appreciate the heads up. no one else said anything!
I never know whether to point out things like that or not. I would want you to tell me though. 🙂
A beautiful set of haiku….I loved the last two!
Like the haiga. Like the senyru. Anything to do with rain..is good fodder for poetry…You did it very well here.
