    A wonderful haiku. Probably more than wonderful. Wish I had written it myself. Very original, creative and sinks into many levels. Pun intended.

    under the ivy
    a garden gnome
    smiling in the sun

    rain
    the realisation that my trouble
    will soon be over too

    summer boathouse reflect
    migrant ducks, shivering rain--
    silent converse
