Rain has drowned me
While standing by my mother's grave,
it is Mother's Day.

I will nit pick a little for my own sake

rain falls upon me
while standing by mama's grave
it is mother's day

it is always your choice as to how to respond to a critique
I am not a syllable counter myself,, but most are at first.
repeating words in a piece so short is not ideal

thank you for the haiku... I like haiku



from Al's excellent suggestion, may i say
Rain falls upon me
well, that's what rain does, it falls.
How about something more intimate?
Rain washes over me
Rain soaks into me
or anything else that makes it more your own.

Thanks, I'll keep that in mind
