We're experiencing record-breaking rain in the Bay Area. As of March 30, it had rained 24 days in the month, beating a March 1904 record of 23 wet days. Now we are at April 3rd, and it is raining, as it rained yesterday. No let up in sight. This isn't fucking Seattle!(Apologies to Seattle-ites - I love that town.)
Levees are breaking in the Delta, roadways are flooding, hills are sliding. It's just lovely. And I can't stand it anymore!
So I'm writing very poor rain haikus. Please join me - send some haikus my way! (Remember, haiku is 5/7/5 syllables - but liberties are of course allowed - there ain't no haiku police around.)
rain falls endlessly
drip, drip, down the water spout
will it never stop?
Rain falls steadily
cars swoosh by on wet pavement
Slip. Slide. Honk Honk! CRASH!
I sing in the rain
Stomping in puddles, water flies up
My voice is tuneless now
Drenched in the rain
Shaking fist at dark, grey sky
Fuck the rain – fuck it!
