Rainy Evening

We never measure

the worth of just one rain-drop…

just the water gauge.


  1. Carol, I’ve just followed your blog as of today, as I have been wanting to learn to write poetry and another blog friend gave me the link to your guest post today about learning to write poetry. I do love your writing. I’ve been reading some of your Haiku poetry and have a question. Is there a rule as to the number of words per line? Many of yours differ. I’ve seen 3-5-4 etc., but hey seem to differ. I will do as your recommend in your Guest Post and read more poetry as well as get away from the computer more and experience life a little more.thanks!

    1. I use the 5-7-5 syllable rule for haiku poetry. It’s a more traditional form.
      I’m glad you liked the post and it’s lovely to hear someone recommended my blog. May I ask who it was?
