Baffled raindrops
hitting the concrete
plum rain

      Hi Yossi and thanks for the question. There are two answers.
      Firstly, I used “plum rain” as a kind of metaphor – the raindrops are like plums 🙂 Secondly, I heard that there are two Japanese phrases for the rainy season – one is ‘tsuyu’ and the other is ‘baiyu,’ which literally means “plum rain,” because that is when the plums are ripening.

    As you say!
