Rainy days and Mondays? My dog, Daisy, looks so bored.
What let her down is just the rain fall.
Fortunately in my area September rain fell relatively gently despite of approaching typhoon, and it cooled me down physically and mentally. I was more reflective than usual in the midst of the rapid change of climate.
It was like already long ago when we had a relentless heat wave.
brought various damages around near here, in Kansai region too. And until recent days the temperature was as high as that of late summer again.
Today's rain fall made the climate much closer to the real calender.
In my garden some Japanese limes are growing slowly, being barely visible from underneath of the leaves.
Unknown plants have settled down nearby the lime tree and have massive tiny flowers.
Some of them started to have some seeds which look like berries. Anyone knows the name of this plant?
Recently my youngest son told me his determination of remarriage in near future.
Listening to the sound of rain fall I thought of the months and years which have passed since he divorced. Regardless to be single or not I'm a little anxious mother about my three sons and a prayer for their future as all of mothers are so.
Have listened to
numerous tapping sound of rain
on my umbrella,
I put it down
dropping a few rain drops from it
Rain in Autumn, in the midst of October, with ripple-chills brings myself to create something.
As it is just not good enough to compose some tanka poems, I tried to make a small chair of eight milk cartons and of some old clothing fragments, for my little grand daughter.
Each of the small scrappy holds memories when I was young and my sons were kids.
Come rain or come shine, the chair will be waiting for your visit, little lady.
I do not dislike autumnal rain, besides I hope the following typhoon wont cause much damage.
