Fair Dinkum Haiku 053: Patters.


Rain Patters on withered leaves.
Gurgles down stale derelict gutters.
Roads glisten beneath street lamps.

Hi Windsmoke,
I think it's amazing sometimes when at night when the street lamps shine onto a wet road, it can look like the road is actually flooded, it's an illusion that is always present at night.

Send some this way. Thanks - another good one.

G' Day MAGS: I've found that happens to me sometimes :-).

G' Day THE ELEPHANTS CHILD: We've run out :-).

This brings to mind visions of deserted roads with no sign of habitation apart from the street lights.

I sure wish you could send some of the rain down here, my plants are desperate.

Could use some rain here, especially with my dead irrigation pump I whined about.

G' Day RIVER: You're spot on :-).

G' Day LIFE RAMBLINGS & BEACH BUM: Mother nature will provide, eventually :-).

Laughter is good for the soul. And various other non-esoteric parts too. Even wrinkles look better when they're laughter-induced.
I shall come and practice more; following you might help with that.

Come and do the same for me? Can't promise many jokes, just silly stories, some even quite serious.But they do say opposites attract.

G' Day FRIKO: Silly and serious stories are Bonza no matter what the subject. I'll follow you no worries :-).

#1. Bananaz would be lucky then if he finds the horseshoe.

G' Day BANANAZ: I would say absolutely to 1 & 2. Betty Blonde watches everybody especially the people who don't wear their reading glasses :-).
