I’ve been invited to join the Recuerda Mi Corazon (haiku my heart) team, wonderfully hosted by Rebecca Brooks.
While I have noted that it is summer in other parts of the world, we in Ghana have entered the rainy season and so my first post for Haiku My Heart is based on the season here. Please, enjoy 🙂
rainy clouds gather
sunlight scuttles for shelter
I wear a long gloomCopyright © Celestine Nudanu 21/06/13
I appreciate your patience with me as I catch up on your blogs. Thanks a million! Shalom
Oh, I hope you are soon able to exchange your long gloom for more joyful attire!
One Breathless Moment
Ha ha ha! The weather is so cold over here and I’m freezing. It rained this morning and my boy could not dry his stuff for school. Gloom indeed 🙂
Yours is breathtaking 🙂

Freezing if Accra, nooo way lovely lady! 🙂
Gilly, I’m so cold now as I type you won’t believe it 🙂 i do wish for sunshine. Anyway, it’s not raining so hard like in the regions 🙂
Oh! I was feeling just this same way last week.
Wearing a long gloom…that is perfection! ♥
Thank you so much 🙂 Hope you are feeling ‘gay’ now 🙂
That’s a great image – love your style!
Thank you, EHG 🙂

I hope there’ll be no room for gloom soon, make way for the sun! x
Hoping so too 🙂 Some days, the sun comes out in its full glory, though 🙂
Are you here? You just described what’s happening outside my window.
Is that so? I thought you guys are in summer?
We’re in summer. But – we have storms coming through today.
wow! a global change in normal weather patters 🙂

Perhaps we can share. I’m growing tired of the pounding sun. It’s too hot to be outside much of the day. I’ll exchange some sun for some of your rain. 😉 Alice
Willingly, Alice 🙂 I just stepped outside my office briefly to see a colleague off and even though its only 5.18 pm, the weather is so hazy and cloudy with more rain threatening. I could hardly see 🙂
Alice Keys said:
Poor thing. Stay dry. 🙂
Very expressive words and image!
Oh no! I feel your pain! However your wearing a long gloom brought a smile to my face. 🙂 Hope you see the sun soon!Haiku My Heart Filled with Song
The sun is up today, Wabi. A glorious day indeed 🙂

A haiku that is very appropriate for the rainy season. We aren’t so gloomy when those fresh fruits and vegetables are sitting on our plates though (I just linked to your other haiku for the day about lunch). I’m smiling because I think I’m clever.
You ARE clever, dear Nana and I admire you so much. I just wish I could get any one of your novels to read so I can review it on my blog. :- Please!
I see the color in your lines! Great work!
Thanks Marie. 🙂
I hope your gloom goes away. Look to the sky that releases this rain and think how beautiful those drops are, for water is the lifeblood of mother earth. Here in Florida it is hot and steamy and we are on water restrictions..once a week watering lawns.. my poor plants gulp it. .Stay dry. LOVED that “sunlight scuttles for shelter”. Awesome haiku.
Thank you Judie. Indeed, water is life and for us in Ghana there are places where water is so scarce; the available one is not even clean for human consumption. Even in my home, there are times we store rain water to use for bathing and washing our clothes. But rain all day long or days on end can bring the gloom. Fortunately today, the sunlight has ‘scuttled’ back 🙂 Glad for your visit 🙂

I wonder what it’s like to get on a plane to Ghana and dance in your rain there 🙂
It would be wonderful I’m sure 🙂
Welcome to the Haiku circle. Yes, we have Summer in Europe but up ´till now it was wet and grey and rainy here too… Hope you have a dry weekend, sending you a ray of sunshine from Holland!
Thank you so much Marit. Today the sun is up smiling, a glorious day indeed 🙂
i am so delighted to welcome you to haiku my heart! please forgive my late arrival but i have been under the weather, and just now rising like a welcome sun. your haiku is wonder filled, as i LOVE the rain! any day you like i shall trade you the almost constant impossibly blue sky in the mountains of arizona for your generous rain! please do return to us on fridays for haiku my heart, you are most sincerely welcome!
Thank you so much, Rebecca. I must say I love the idea behind Haiku My Heart, writing anything that comes form your heart 🙂 Over here, the sun has been up for the past days after the rain and I must say it is a welcome relief. It gets cooler in the evenings though.
Glad to be part of this wonderful community, 🙂
As a lover of the gloom, I would dance in the rain while the sunlight cowers under cover.
Lovely collection you have here.
Thank you so much, Annie. I’m glad you came over.
