three raindrops—count them!—
just enough to tantalize
my wilting squash vines

    Oh, Mark! This made me remember the family garden when I was a kid — waiting for a much-anticipated rain – sometimes a rain that never arrived!!! It seemed so cruel. That first line — I could *HEAR* that indignation!!! [“Count them!”]

    Anyway. This turned into a ramble. Loved the haiku — 😀

    ah just three drops of rain … anyone whose ever been totally dependant on rain fall … that sometimes never comes can feel the longing in these first words of your haiku … very powerful!

  6. How dry areas connect with those 3 raindrops and know what a serious treasure they can be.

    wilted leaves in noonday’s heat
    crave moisture of evening’s dew
