the rain gauge
Issue 14.1 | 28 May 2014
So appropriate now!
Sometimes a well composed haiku works with close images, close juxtaposition, as this one does. The technical 'two-tenths' dust really lifts this haiku up again.
Excellently executed haiku.
Excellent haiku, Don
Spare, and oh so well observed.
But also optimistic. From the very brevity I have a sense the indomitable type of farmer confronted by such drought. The drought will pass and the crops will return.
Thanks for sharing this.
Beautiful imagery here Don.
The way the promise of rain has been juxtaposed with dust, is fabulous.
Everything is very open with a clear clarification of the issues. It was definitely informative. Your site is very useful. Many thanks for sharing!
