Wednesday.. Drums and Downpours Fill My Day!..

"If money be not thy servant, it will be thy master. The covetous man cannot so properly be said to possess wealth, as that may be said to possess him." - Francis Bacon

"In the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt." - Margaret Atwood

"Spring has returned. The Earth is like a child that knows poems." - Rainer Maria Rilke

the poor count riches

loudly persuasive to self

as the lion roars

a hush falls over the crowd-

clowns empty buckets

Thanks for stopping by my rainy.. dripping.. dreary.. world today.. I hurried the dogs on a short walk with one eye on the darkening clouds.. Even though we ran the last two hundred steps.. I still got soaked.. that was early this morning.. I told myself that it was a refreshing way to start the day... I welcome comments and followers.. Have a great day!

The poor always want
What the rich have: not enough.
They always want more.

Interesting set of posts..I felt a little sadness and a hint of a rainy start to the day..but also the riches of simple things like yummy biscuits..Jae

I wish it would start raining - we got a surprise snow dusting last night. Again.

Well done haiku :) Have a great, albeit soggy, day!
