    Nourishing raindrops, quenching showers, toadstool umbrellas– I had temporarily forgotten the joys I found as a child in this simple manifestations of moister and organisms on this wonderful earth! Bless you. Most successful haiku, I therefore declare this!

    Fairies, pixies, elves all rely
    on mushrooms as places to hide
    when the rain drops grow bigger and more wet
    mushrooms make the best and most color-ful umbrellas yet

    Pain and salve so well placed here…very nicely done!!!

    Under a toadstool crept a wee elf
    out of the rain to shelter himself.
    Under a toadstool fast asleep …

    a poem from my childhood: I wish I could remember the rest! I’m glad you’re doing the challenge too.
