Architecture Haiku

New thatch on the roof,
oil for the garden gate's squeak –
now I'm ready, rain!


(Thanks to the women of One Deep Breath
for their continuing inspiration,
and to the hard-working folks at Building Conservation,
from whose site I lifted this fabulous photo.)

ready for the rain -- indeed!

Thatched roofs are amazing- so watertight! Where was this taken?

Excellent. There's a lot of haikus out there, few of which really do the trick. This does.

What a great place to tuck in from the rain...and a nicely put together haiku, too.
