We've just had two solid days of most welcome rain. This senryu captures my feelings beautifully, Doug. :)

NIce! I wish that old friend would visit here. I agree with Lorraine, you are definitely tuned to nature's happenings.

Devika said...

Devika said...

Oh Magyar, i had to say this...what i said I Lorraine's y'day,

Why and where do our old fiends go away? Lorraine, you, me are all missing them,

wishes,
devika

Magyar said...

I thank you all, my friends!

__Dev... I wish I had a common and solid answer to your question... I can only say that life changes quickly, and sometimes we must silently respond to those changes.

The leaves fall
Others take their place
The life stories
Float away on the wind
And we...
Can only wonder

Devika said...

I understand Magyar, in all its depths...

ofcourse, unlike leaves floating in the wind, we are talking about people in flesh and blood, who ought to react to life's circumstances as poets/artists/thinkers....well, but as you say, differing life stories, changing priorities and choices...and we wonder,

But I hope they come back :)

wishes,
devika

We had more than enough rain for many days to come. the city was flooded with water by rain and our local river (you can get the picture by this http://www.brande-lokal.net/2010/08/18/og-sa-fik-vi-noget-andet-at-t%c3%a6nke-pa/
so we have become a little nervous when it's raining :)

Jens,
__Here, this is our first -real-rain in a long time. Not as bad as Gillena's drought, yet we are happy
to have it. So sorry to hear of your flooding... best wishes, my friend! _m
