the weight of rain
in my hair

the weight of rain in my hair - something i don't have too much of a problem with these days Aurora :

my head
wondering if i should comb
or polish it

your haiku brings to mind a haiku written by a 15 year old in workshop with me a couple of years ago:

limp hair
hangs past my cheeks
beating rain

When you have looooooooong hair, getting soaked in a spring shower can really weigh you down.:)

Aurora, I very much like the tactile imagery here. Very evocative.
