It’s dry and we’re hoping for rain soon (link to Kristjaan’s prompt at CDHK).

This is the great kind of concrete haiku I was going on about: I replied to your nice, positive comment on Kristjan’s page with a not nice one! Yes, I think ALL haiku are spiritual, and Kristjaan’s posts on Hinduism were fascinating. Technically, they are haibun, and if you look at the haiku they are crystal clear and tangible.
Faith is also for the reader to feel. Let him or her find the faith through the objective reality of the haiku…Our haiku must get better, and develop. We cannot be heroes with every single haiku we write. We must be at one with our readers, where possible, and in the end, we are writing haiku, not 3 lines about our faith.
Best rehards Lynn.

Thank you for commenting, especially the line about “we cannot be heroes with every single haiku we write” 🙂 Growth and development are important…I’m still learning.

I like to sit near bay window to watch…unless there’s a tornado warning!

Yes,me too but in the middle of the night awakened by thunder and high winds…not so much.

Oh sometimes I feel that you can smell the thunder.
