More wet stuff

Yesterday was a rainy day sandwiched between two rare sunny days. Unfortunately, I was stuck inside on the sunny days and was out and about on the rainy day. As I left the house, giant wet snowflakes were coming down. By the time I got to Commerical Drive and downtown Vancouver, there was just giant wet. I still ended up enjoying myself — perhaps because haiku kept happening (and creating anything always puts me in a good mood), and perhaps because I was still feeling high from good news I received the day before.

The haiku:



 rain on bus windows

 blurrs neon and car headlights

 into Christmas colours






buildings, sidewalk, street

everything is cloaked in gray

except a red coat


The good news:

My first picture book story has been accepted by Orca Book Publishers (for publication in Fall 2010)!!

    your blog is so enjoyable to read. It’s like taking a tour around the city and seeing everything through your sensitive and thoughtful perspective. Your haiku are so restorative to my soul. I love today’s one starting “rain on bus windows”. It is very beautiful.
