That first poem makes writers block sound kind of cool!

I don't know about cool, but a good downpour is good haiku weather. ;-)

interesting that the tap tap tap of writer's block on the skylight produces haiku. may be haiku is an antidote to writer's skylight. ...i mean... block. interesting bit of twist and irony going on there.

way fun reading Issa's ku you placed as well. i have to keep reading it (repeating it in my skull - if not out loud) just to hold onto the two ku.

Yes, Wrick, the Issa haiku has staying power. And I think you've hit the essence of Charles' ku.
