The storm



flash of lightning
as winds flee in haste -  
tempest of woman scorned  

~0~0

pouring rain 
sharp pointed as knives -    
oak trees fall in surrender
   
~0~0 

stormy skies: 
mighty wrecking ball, 
yet fleeting as blue butterflies

  2. great picture....the storms...i love to stand in a good storm and feel its power....but then again what it leaves in its wake...it is power unrestrained and dangerous as well...still thinking of all the people without power and its just getting colder in NY

  3. The storms are rather rough and can throw around tons of stuff, but when they are through, what a view, happy saturday to you.

  4. I love the comparison of the wrecking ball and butterflies and storm and anger. Wow you nailed it! Let the winds flee in haste. There is power in your words, threat, and a promise that this too shall pass.

  5. I like all of these, Grace. The last one is my favorite. Yes, storms are fleeting but ominous..and comparing their fleeting to blue butterflies is inspired.

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  6. Oh this is so beautiful- it also makes me reflect about Tuesday if we don't all really look deeply into who we select.... women especially- we need to think deep...as deep as the words of your poem- oh world look out if you scorn a woman!

  7. Love the contrast between the stormy skies and butterflies in the last one. It's what makes haiku work so well--contrast in images and words. Have a lovely weekend! :)

  12. Great set of 'stormy' weather haiku. I love the last one. The power of the storm compared with fragile butterflies.

  13. The first haiku (stanza?)(they work as well either way) is superb, a real gem of a verse. The whole melds well into a fine poem.
