Haiga 782 - Water Haiku 19

Haiku by Connie Donleycott (USA). Artwork by myself.
It is raining today again. It seems the rain comes every other day now. Spring is definitely nearing.
In where I live, there is a famous and long lasting (since year 752) annual event called Omizutori. It takes place for two weeks from March 1, and they say spring won't come until Omizutori is over. So, we need to wait a little bit for the new season to unfold.

Omizutori -

水とりや氷の僧の沓の音(みずとりや こおりのそうの くつのおと) 芭蕉
