Rain clouds

Rice seedlings, white birds—

I read your news.

    A stunning visual poem.

  2. Glad you liked it, Payal. If I may raise a query on your own haiku, though: your first line would normally be thought of as denoting late summer, while your last line is certainly early summer, anyway here in Japan. The only thing I can think of that is harvested in early summer is barley, a winter crop, for it is precisely at this season (beginning of the monsoon when rice seedlings are planted out) that they do so. Please enlighten us as to what you were thinking of.

    Hello Tito. By harvest rain ,I meant a propelled driven airboat that spray showers of fungicide water over the rice seedlings, irrespective of any season.
