Literally an "inspired" poem, Roman. Clearly you have captured a genuine physical moment in time and space – one which many readers can connect to. But it seems to me you have also written a profoundly spiritual haiku. We only become aware of the scent of the rain through breathing in – inspiration. And the breath is traditionally seen to be the bearer of spirit. Other cues for a spiritual interpretation are the context – desert, and dawn.
In capturing this sunrise reflection, and the transience of the rain, is Roman asking us to also consider our mortality – the transience of life, and to ponder immortality? Perhaps it is the "scent" of our own life – the most beautiful remnants of our path through this desert world – that will give hope for living beyond our graves.
Powerful, thought-provoking, and moving spiritual haiku!
Thank you for sharing it.
