Haibun: Snapdragon Moon

The early morning drizzle is full of promise. Scorched fields of grass and droopy gardens sigh with relief when the promise turns to rain. After a heatwave and hose-ban to preserve diminishing pools of water flowers raise their heads in gratitude, singing full of colour.

      1. I hope so, too. Been doing a lot of hand watering to plants that really need it. The lawn, on the other hand, is always left to its own devices, and it does just fine without any help from us.
