August 20th NaHaiWriMo prompt is "surrender", provided by Chrissi Villa

no wind today
the chimes hang limp
and I watching

...And one from my hubby today, too, Cameron Elliot:

treatment ends
the sky yields
a burst of rain

  1. Isn't it great to share a creative art with your husband. I know it was the joy of my life when John was still with me.

  2. Yes! He doesn't write haiku often, just when he's struck by a moment every now and then. I've paired his photos with my haiku at times, too, which I enjoy. Inspiration through collaboration! :)
