by Joe David

rain falls serenely
on the parking lot
the cars do not grow

doesn't qualify as haiku to me.

It may not qualify as haiku, but I'm giving it highest marks... cuz I like it, lots and lots, possibly a parking lot full of lots. Welcome to Pathetic!

Oh how so cleverly you transform the haiku form as if your ear knew it would take only fifteen syllables AND NO MORE to capture this evocative moment.

The rain's waste of time should be outlawed as a crime. What a shame for the crops on the plain. I(TRULY)enjoyed this. Thank you for sharing it. Welcome to Pathetic.

well, high kudos! I enjoyed this delightful mind-nthing poem.

Welcome to Pathetic!

Good juxtaposition. Lacks the necessary 17 syllables to be a classical haiku. Use of serenely for a description of a natural phenomena not in the spirit of the best of haiku. But you have caught a moment in nature and its effect (or noneffect).

I am most partial to a cool ku!

Not a ku, but I think the thought is clever.
