I often run in and gulp down water in between watering my gardens.

Your sensory imagery is serene and beautiful, Milt. A wonderful haiku. I love the title too, that sets the quiet stage. Warmest wishes.. ~Susan

I had to look up cannas, excited to maybe learn a new bird, a new lily is no less exciting, but sure changes the imagery. ;), Lovely poem! xomo
