National Poetry Month -- Haiku 24

Yesterday morning I posted about haiku and I linked to a haiku video and I thought about haiku,
but I didn't have time to write and post my own.

(I know, I know. 17 syllables. Should take 17 seconds. But it doesn't. At least not for me. I am the queen of spending about 6 months on 200 words which may well be a sign of illness but so be it...)

I'm good to my word, though.
A haiku a day.
So, yesterday afternoon my daugher inspired this when she updated me on her Painted Lady caterpillar (named Lazy Jane, after a Shel Silverstein character):

Haiku 24

caterpillar spins
her silk button and holds fast --
waits for it to rain
