heavy rain falling
our friendly creek overflows
we load up the car

  1. Ah …. love this haiku! I’m reminded of our tent-camping days when our children were young. Many a time we broke camp and packed up in the rain. 🙂 Always made for much quicker packing, that’s for sure! 🙂

  2. What a wonderful thought – a friendly creek! Now I want to know what you loaded in the car and where you were going!

  3. A creek, no longer friendly… I have never experienced flooding…

  4. Ah, I love the contrast between the friendly creek and the need to get out fast! So much packed into 3 short lines.

  5. That friendly creek must be dangerous during an overflow.

  6. Live/camp near water at your own risk these days. You say a lot in just a few words.

  7. We had flooding in May. Still dealing with the after-effects in some places. It isn’t a pretty thing – all that brown, churning water. I’m glad you thought to speak to this side of rain.

  8. Oh dear! Sounds as if you’re heading for higher land. Luck be with yoU!

  9. I love reading and writing haiku … yours is perfect. I have had to flee for higher ground a few times in my life.
