Two Storms

two storms –
the lightning outside
feels tame


Shared with Haiku Heights.


(’12, Dec 01)

Poetry & writing to me are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.

    • Not so much tamed lightning, Pranita. Just the allusion that lightning seems tame in comparison to the storm within 🙂 Thanks.

  1. Fun allusion that our inner life is often more tumultuous then anything nature can offer.

    Interestingly, your instructions say: “Please note: We at Haiku Heights only need the haiku to be reflective of the topic. You need not actually use the word in your haiku.”

    I tried that today — you went the other direction. The inner storm can cloud our perception. 😉

    • Ah, the allusion is fun, but the storm within definitely isn’t, Sabio 🙁 Struggle to contain it at times.

      Yeah, I know. I put the word in 😉 I do do haiku without the actual word in it, but this time went that way 😀 I read yours, and it was quite a painting of words. 🙂

    • That’d take it to a level I can’t handle, Bjorn. Two storms is difficult, a storm inside one of the storms would be out of this world.

    • Ah, the storm outside tamed as the clouds parted. The one inside my heart is still there, it will take more time than the one outside. Thanks, Jolly 🙂
