No rain no rain drought.

unaware it's paradise:

how sweet it isn't

I have absolutely no idea what this thread is about.....somebody educate me...please. 

What on earth is haiku?

Honestly I have never heard of the term.

Verbal origami?

Sudoku for poets?

Limericks for the verbally challenged?

What??

about emptied mind,

sparkling unexpectedly,

when rain loves you back
