Seven Drops Haiku


Rain came lightly down

Only seven drops

#haiku 5-/-5

Haikus are traditionally 5 syllables, 7 syllables, 5 syllables in 3 respective lines. Haikus traditionally have nature as a theme. I hope you enjoy my play in the second line. Each drop would make a sound. Thus seven sounds or syllables. The slant angle of each drop is the same as the stem of the number 7. Instead of listing this as a 5-7-5 haiku. I listed it as 5-/-5 – I live in Western Washington State. Known for both its light and heavy rainy winters and seasons in general.
