                                                  a quiet rain–
                                                  content to lie awake
                                                  and listen

                                                  beads of mist
                                                  from the umbrella's spokes
                                                  alternating drops

                                                  my umbrella
                                                  flipped in the wind–
                                                  uncertain days

winter rain
drumming on my umbrella . . .
nowhere I have to be

It's an underrated season.

Hmm. I left a comment here. Don't know what became of it.

Hi Bill,

Winter has its compensations: hearty soups, warm sweaters, fire going in the fireplace, warm in bed when the north wind blows.

You left a comment on last week's haibun.

Thanks for stopping by.
