Today's inform challenge at Poetic Bloomings is short and sweet; the Dodoitsu.  The Dodoitsu is a fixed folk song form of Japanese origin and is often about love or humor. It has 26 syllables arranged as four lines of 7, 7, 7, 5 syllables respectively. It is unrhymed and non-metrical.

Soft rain slips a cool blanket
Over the rounded shoulders
Of a summer-weary earth
Drained of its laughter

We are love-loving the rain after a scorching summer!
