Haiku Carpe Diem Special #21, Chiyo-Ni’s Spring Rain

Today’s Carpe Diem Haiku Prompt is Spring Rain by Fukada Chiyo-Ni

harusame ya utsukushiu naru mono bakari

Spring rain
everything just grows
more beautiful

I have tried to keep the same syllable count as Chiyo-Ni’s, but a slightly different look at what might happen during a spring rain.

  1. This is like really written ages ago, JRB. With that…indescribable wisdom…of life. Liked a lot.

    And they do leave a trail!!! I got a chuckle even though those ‘slugs’ as we call them are my arch enemy!!


  4. I love the snails (the one with the shells) but the slugs are terrible.


  5. Slowly, very slowly the snail is greeting Spring. Nicely done.
