Capturing images from a crazy weather day
"haiku (morning rain)" by mountainwriter49
.
haiku (morning rain)
haiku suite
 

morning rain
pings against window panes
mesmerizing
 

sun’s violet rays
streak towards mountain ridge
finger of God
 

distant thunder
clamors as brisk winds  bow trees
leaves aswirl
 

black and grey clouds
enshroud mountain ridge
opacity
 

ominous skies 
unleash
torrential rains and winds
deluge
 

steam rises
up from asphalt street
evanesce
 

blue sky appears
as squirrels scurry on the ground
pax

Author Notes
POETIC FORM: Haiku Suite

Haiku is a Japanese short poetic form focusing on a direct observation. While the form has many rules, several of the key ones are as follows: must not personify nature; captures an observable moment in time and not something the poet imagines is happening; written in present tense and utilizes minimal capitalization and punctuation; follows a short-long-short line format utilizing 17 or fewer syllables; two lines are grammatically connected and the third line serves as an ah-ha moment, or satori. A haiku suite is a collection of several haiku which come together to create a more complete story. With that said, each haiku within the suite must be able to stand on its own.

WORDS:

Finger of God = A Renaissance art term used to describe a streak of light stretching from the heavens to the earth.

Pax = (Latin), a period of peace.

Thank you for reading my poetry.
