Rain is a Hard Consonant


Recommended Posts

Juris, I hadn't thought of rain as a consonant, but that's exactly what it is, and a "hard" one. This is terrific. Haiku/tanka-like but better!

Thanks guys. Hmmm, Phil you have a point. Was sticking to a form, replacing vowels with hard consonants, much like the original Japanese or Chinese. But you have a point;-) Thanks Tony for seeing through my thin attempt at form;-)

Hope you'all are well.

Hi doc, I too like the haikuesque clarity of this piece, the startling assertions.

Thanks,

It is the same impression I got, am I reading a haiku? So my mind started building the structure.  But the symbolical experience of raining hard and letting the world in (into some secure private space perhaps as contrast) opened it up for the reader to consume and make sense for himself.
