I’m sorry the house looks crooked… I live
on a hill and have to go up the steep drive way
across the street, and,  it seems I straighten
the street, and so the house is crooked
on almost every photo I take of it !

.
My two story bungalow…as you can
see it has dormers on all sides…
take my word for on  the  back!
For years often when it  rained,
I would be woken up by drip, drip,
drip, …drip,. drip on my head…
and I sleep on the first floor.
For over 30 years…a LONG time,
it was a periodic problem.
And then, …………and THEN,
I found someone who
fixed the leaks
around the dormers…
a “dormer problem
that is hard to resolve”
the roofers would say
….and I can sleep
without finding
a tarp and buckets
to put on the waterbed
on first floor !

.
Euphoria,
for sure,

I can tell you !

Little Ones is a new special
from Carpe Diem
where we are challenged to produce
a small Haiku form such as a Pi-ku.

Pi-ku is a haiku form based
on the mathematical number Pi,
it’s value is 3,14
this value is seen
in the three lines:

1st = 3 syllables;


2nd = 1 syllable

and 3rd = 4 syllables.

.
.
=============

My first Pi-ku:
.
.

.
rain’s downpour
.

deluge
.

need canoe NOW
