Storm #midnighthaiku

Clouds heavy with rain

Welcome after the heatwave

Summer storms begin

I watched the heavy drops make lace as they fell on the blade of water. Watched their dance in the grooves of the decking. Saw them weigh down the heat-weary heads of the roses. And then the winds came…

Storms ravage nature

Felling the old and fragile

Price of survival

  3. I tend to trust nature. However, I wouldn’t park under a cocoanut tree. 🙂 — Suzanne

    They are still clearing branches and trees from the storm 2 weeks ago. I think these cleansing storms will increase until we are forced to listen. (K)
