Obscure (to me anyway), but intriguing.

Lorraine Renaud said...

Good to see you again, Nick_!
__The Greek goddess Pandora, her empty jar... their failed economy; the sadness of their struggling families.

So precious water ! Here we had yesterday a good downpour. Finally!

the water spent
the wait aside
the narrow path

A rain barrel comes to mind when I read this _m.
Families used to depend on them in the "olden" days.
They are also a good idea for conservation in the world of today~

BONJOUR Magyar !

Merci de votre visite sur mon blog.

Elles portent sur la tête
la manne céleste
Elles portent dans le ventre
le devenir du monde

__Hidden, held in their hands, the life of this world; I thank you Yanis, for your return and very welcome visit_! _m

days of drought
catch the rain in a jar
nights of need

That is California's dilemma

Fine haiku Doug :)

Magyar said...

Ouch...there is something utterly heart-rending about this one, Doug, perhaps because it so powerfully evokes the image of the struggles of modern life (as well as Pandora's legacy).
Absolutely brilliant work!:))

That is quite surprising... I have never heard of that before reading your post!
It makes me quite puzzled and angry too!
