Storm

white veined hands 
tear the lilac sky into pieces - 
thousand candles fell

~0~0~

Late Night Nebraska Thunderstorms

~0~0~

her eyes --
blooms  of darkest violet -- 
kept secrets  


Haiku Heights:  Storm

  7. The first one produces a really beautiful image in the mind to great effect. Candles... yes it's lights out when there's a lightning storm, on another level I imagine a loud one upsetting candles placed about a house.

    Glad to have dropped in on this.

  8. In lightening, to see the hands!
    In storm, to see Elizabeth Taylor's eyes!
    Cool.

  9. I like the two poems written for the same picture, each is an interesting version of a powerful element.

  10. Exquisite. You were able to capture two very different storms without mentioning the word'storm' Well done.

  12. You captured the scene most vividly in the first haiku to the picture. We could feel the 'lighted candles' falling from the veined hands. Nicely Grace!

  27. great imagery, but to be honest, I'm wrestling a little with your first; the second is 'just poetry'!
