Perfect Storm – Haiku Sequence

Perfect Storm

Charcoal clouds
begin to form on
blue canvas of sky
 
Moving quickly
across the expanse
Darkness hovering
 
Menacingly
Spawning thunder claps
Booming loudly
 
Lightning cracks
open the sky
on cue
 
Together
in perfect concert
they perform
 
Before bowing
in acceptance of
the rain’s applause

Frank Tassone is hosting D'Verse Poets Pub
tonight and has prompted us with
a Haiku Sequence.
You can write your haiku using the
traditional 5-7-5 syllable count.
Alternatively, you can write haiku
that can be read aloud in a breath,
using a short-long-short format,
without a syllable count.

After the Storm – Poem of the Month – July 2020

After the Storm

Geography of sands
shifted by the storm
forming a river
through the dunes
Water collected 
in a cerulean bay
of calmness after the rage
Angry winds sweeping
seaweed and driftwood ashore 
Remnants of horseshoe crabs
Laid to rest on a beachy grave
Coffee-colored sea grasses
Pliable and resilient
Standing tall, now waving gently
Resistant to the wind
The ravages
of nature’s anger
Abolished
Long gone
leaving only silence

Coffee - Stream of Conciousness 
River - Word of the Day
