Haiku – The Calm Before the Storm

The storm is patient

Pets howl at the silence

The lights flicker out…

  1. Ahhhh I love this!!! I also love the fact that it is more true to a haiku because it talks about nature but it gives this feeling of dread. I need mooooore haha

    And can I repost this own my author page with a link back to your blog? I think people would enjoy your work πŸ™‚

      I try to slip that traditional style in now and then, but sometimes I just completely go off track lol

      1. Of course. If you also have a FB author page I can link that too!

        Haha I think you write wonderfully and even if it isn’t about nature, your haikus are awesome. Keep it up! πŸ˜€
