El Niño Blows In: Haikus

el nino1)not yet our birthday
still, El Niño gives us all
gifts of rain and snow


2)Water is life. but
harder to appreciate
when your pants are wet   🙂


3)if you have not yet
walked naked in the rainstorm
whachya waitin’ for?


4)El Nino blows in
I’m flexible in strong winds.
just like willow tree


5)life under plum tree
sprinkle or torrent or drought
take it as it comes


6)weeds and turnips both
grow enthusiastically
under winter skies


7)Hard to imagine
when everything is soggy
there was ever doubt/drought.


8)torrential downpours
like oxygen and wind, are
Life: our mother’s breath
