It’s Saturday, and once again I’m a slowpoke. Or, as I referred to my friend, Janet Webb, as she asked if she’d missed my blog this morning, “I’m a Saturday Snail.” I’ve been bitten by Spring Fever, and have spent the day shopping at Home Depot for flowers and patio furniture, then on to Costco for barbecue fixings for this evening.
No excuse. So, without further adieu, here is my haiku on “water.” I wrote it during the drought a few summers ago, when we worried our well at the farm might run dry:
clear water trickles
so long taken for granted
until it is gone
