Pitter Patter falls the rain

Cat watching the rainfall

Dear kitty, if you knew
What the rain would do to you
You would run away 
On my window pane
Pitter patter falls the rain
Such a sweet refrain

Dried and dusty brown
Grass relinquishing its ground
Rain brings it back to life

Flowers everywhere
Wouldn't have had a prayer
But for the gentle rain
Life is on the very brink
Thirsty little flowers drink
Lifting heads again
Nature by 

Kritsjaan challenges us to write haiku and inspires us with the mention of cooling rains and cherry blossoms. We have no cherry blossoms yet, but I anxiously await them. Their beauty and fragrance are truly a welcome sign of spring. Kristjaan offers daily haiku challenges, so check him out from time to time. There is sure to be one that will inspire you to wax poetic. :-) See you at carpe diem

I love your haiku.

If it doesn't stop raining here in MO, I WILL lose my mind.

Love your poetry, and that your are not afraid to use rhyme. The pitterpatter spoke most clearly to me.
