Written for:  Carpe Diem #1592 – storm

“Winter one of the most rare seasons I think. There is so much happening in winter and sometimes winter brings us stormy weather … Today I have chosen a nice modern kigo from Jane’s “A Dictionary of Haiku” … storm.

Jane has written several haiku inspired on this theme and I love to share a few of her beauties with you all here at CDHK.”

after the snowstorm
new paths to old places
the skies clear

after the snowstorm
only wood smoke drifts
into the clearing


roaring sound
storm embraces my home
we cuddle up

Here is my attempt:

wolf howls
thump of patio umbrella
sounds of raging storm

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
