Shelter

I dash for cover
Underneath the broad green leaves
Rain drops kept at bay


The dirt gives gently
As the earthworm burrows down
Seeking safe shelter

Two lovely haiku. Great idea to think of soil as the shelter for earthworms!

These are both lovely and appropriate to the rainy day we have here.

I hadn't thought of earthworms for years until reading your delightful haiku. Once after a harsh rainstorm in Jordan, hundreds of earthworms were inching along the parking lot at the Marriott Hotel!

cozy images...it's almost magical how a handful of words can paint such a vivid picture. So well done.

or is it you
who the rain now keeps
at bay?

your pair of lovely haiku struck me with the notion that we are giants who depend on the minuscule - such as water droplets and earthworms.
