    Jeannie, a perfect expression of the lonely heart, thanks. Here is one of mine with a similar feeling after losing one who was close to me…

    Here's one I wrote a while back:
    bouncing rain
    I force the hotel window
    a little wider

    Very nice haiku, Jeannie. I see this one in conversation with Peggie Lyles' famous haiku:

    summer night
    we turn out all the lights
    to hear the rain

    – Lorin
