Even small creatures
drink from rain and understand
the sun shines again.

So simple yet complex
Drinks from the rain and understands
I love that line
Me thinks it was the picture
That turned my mind on
As always sheldon

Fly’s photograph is unbelievably beautiful! It belongs on National Geographic. Thanks so much, dear Shel. I’m always wishing for you sunshine after your rain. xo
Thank you Rose
I can always count on you
To dot the eyes and cross the tees
The Sheldon Perspective
I do try, but I’m not always successful! The tees don’t like to be crossed, at times… they’re so grumpy. 🙂
You two make such a team. Beautiful haiku and the photo is incredible.
Ah, you say the kindest things, Og! I’m so happy to have run into you on WP. Yes, my friend, incredible, magical shot. 💧🌞
Happy Friday to you! I would like to invite you to get creative and join my Halloween Writing Contest! Great way to meet new bloggers and try some fiction writing. Hope to see you there 🙂 https://scaleitsimple.com/2016/10/21/halloween-writing-contest/
Thanks! I’ll check it out — sounds like fun 🙂
While the splendid haiku could stand alone, it is better still with the splendid photo of the cricket, which appears to be about to get a drink from the droplet running down its face.
Dunno how often crickets drink that way, but beetles in the Namib desert really do get their water by doing headstands on dune crests, letting windblown fog condense on their bodies, and drinking what drips down.

Thanks much, Mel! I love the drop on his “nose!” Fly’s a wonder with his camera.
I had no idea about those beetles doing handstands to get water! Amazing how nature always finds a way.
Speaking of “amazing,” I shall email you soon regarding your exceptional haiku poems. Thank you again for taking that project on. 😘
Another jaw dropped…
the photograph is visually stunning..fly captured it perfectly..flawlessly…and then top it with a brilliant haiku..kudos to both of you..
Ah, Mich, you’re sweet.
Your words always touch my heart!
Thanks for the visit.
As always Rose…a great fan i am

Thank you. I needed to read this today. 🙂
I’m glad I was able to help you a little. xo
Nice Haiku and lovely photograph.
Maybe small creatures
value every drop of rain
as much as the sun.
Ah, your words always captivate me! Thank you for such a lovely gift.
The photo is splendid, too. 🙂
The photo is truly magical. Thanks my friend! 🌹 🌷 🌼
First of all, lovely words , Rose, with so much meaning and depth..secondly..blown over by Mr Fry’s photo…pick me up, a stunner. xxx
Haha! I, too, lost my balance when I saw the photo for the first time — perhaps it was the slippery rain? Thank you Paula! xo
A beautiful Haiku Rose.
And an awesome photo from Fly. 😀
Thanks very much, Alan! The photo is one of my favorite from Fly’s gallery. 😀
Short, but long on meaning. Great work!
I appreciate your visits and kind words, Kat! 🌹
My pleasure, Rose. 🙂

Thank you Soheir. The cricket says, “hello!” 🌷
I love this haiku and photo. Really, really excellent.
You’re so tweet! No one can combeak with you 😀 Are you sick of my silly puns?? Hahaha!!!
Wonderful… rain makes me think of redemption and rebirth… a sip sounds like a refreshing idea…
May the rain find you sheltered until the sun comes out again. Thanks so much!!
Your words made me smile! Thank you Miranda. I love your name.

Thanks Penney! 🎃🌹
Thank you for great blog
Beautiful! I really love how much it says, and how it does so in so few words. 🙂
Thanks Sin! I am enjoying your Black Winter tales, and so is DD. ☠ ❤
Thanks for sharing my image! I think you know what I’m going to say next…………the cricket did all the work! (the cricket is probably a grasshopper! Haha. Oops.)
My pleasure. Ah, well! I’m sure the grasshopper won’t hold a grudge against you. You did capture his best side.
What a shot, Matt! What a shot! No doubt the picture inspired Rose to come up with such a beautiful haiku ❤
You’re always so encouraging, Mani! Thank you so much. ❤
I like this poem, Rose. It makes me feel optimistic somehow.
I’m glad, darling BunK, that optimism is what you feel when you read my poem. You bring sunshine to so many people’s lives with your funny stories — you, too, deserve some warmth. 😀
Thank you, Rose. I appreciate that. Friday is a good day for optimism and sunshine too because I already feel warm and fuzzy from the moment I wake up. 😀
Glad to hear that! 😀
Lovely shot and a sunshine thought!
Thank you kindly, Somali! Great to hear from you again.
So much wisdom in this poem, Rose. Love it very much.
I know your love of animals and also your positive attitude, so I’m not surprised you enjoyed my poem. Thank you for your support and friendship! 🙂
Your poem has a good timing, Rose. A couple of bad things happened one after another, and I know that more bad things will follow if I wont ‘drink that rain water’ with a positive attitude, right focus, and some healthy humor 🙂 We should humble ourselves and receive both the bad and the good as it comes xxxx
I’m sorry to hear that bad things happened to you, Inese! It’s true that your positive attitude will carry you through these dark days and into the warmth. All my best thoughts and wishes for sunshine to reach you. A heart as genuine and generous as yours should only know lovely days, but unfortunately, life is not always kind. Hugs to you! xoxo
Thank you sunshine! We shouldn’t let ourselves feel sad and desperate when unpleasant things happen. It only attracts more unpleasant things, which is exactly the case. I am working hard on fixing all that can be fixed 🙂 Many hugs! xxxx
