For Frank Tassone’s #haikai challenge 151, autumn storm/darkness. I wanted a much gentler vision, but the Oracle was having no part of it.
pounding its raw grey stormchant
wind language dreaming
mad with shadows whispering
in a momentary light
sky clouds rain and wind–
lush vortex spins, releasing
the unheld center
For Frank Tassone’s Haikai Challenge #103. The subject is windstorm.

mélange of thunder swirling–
spilling wind water
