Samidare (midsummer rain)

first drops of rain
on dusty summer soil
sweet aroma

sweet aroma
dawns upon my senses
dancing to the tune

dancing to the tune
pitter-patter raindrops
I row paper boats

I row paper boats
ah, beauty of this moment
first drops of rain


This Haiku is shared with Carpe Diem - Samidare (midsummer rain).

  11. Your poem brings fresh rainy day memories, Amrit. Very nice.
    The first was of a wet puppy dog smell that I still get a whif of sometimes.
    Second was of my 'boats' in the fresh little stream, they were little glass bottles.

  17. Instantly reminds of childhood days...woh kaagaz kii kashti who bearish ka pani...that immortal song by Jagjit-Chitra. I don't understand much about poetry but your lines are addictive.
