Hurricane Haiku




Ensconced in embrace 
Of Frette linens crisped white
Hurricane waiting

~
Grayed skies soak power
Draining all magnetism
All natural force

~
Playing cards slapping
Snippets of songs, sighs, curses
Father-son Sandied 

~
Static sentinels
Stutter staccato signals 
Beyond the patter

~
Manhattan island
In the roiling spilling sea
Torch woman watches

  2. Pearl, Agree with Linda H. about the last one!
    What a turmoil of weather you have had!
    Now the winds and rains are coming to the west--other states & Ontario.
    Stay safe where you are!

  3. Oh yeah! Wondering if a collection of Hurricane Haiku should be published...? Plenty of folks can probably identify with these right now. ;-)

  4. In the face of the storm - make haiku. It's what poets do. :)
