Haiku Heights: Storm

radar-swirled colors
are blameless, tell the story
of wind moving sea

About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?

    A beautiful stormy haiku 🙂

    Indeed. One wonders how Doppler technology would present Kansas when houses fly past a bicycle pedalled by someone of pointed hat and broom, on the transition to a yellow roads.

  3. nelle says:

    Damn poor editing there nelle. ‘a place of yellow roads’.

  7. Leo says:

    Interesting way to put a storm out on paper 😉

  8. nature’s breath swirling
    crude, blowing like raw rude bellows,
    leaving spaces nude

    Are storytellers always blameless? I wonder…

    Still the Storm

    fun 6-7-5 style.
    So glad this is single verse!
    LOVED the modern radar image — definitely not a Thoreau image. 😉

    Radar! You’ve perfectly described a 21st century storm in terms a generation younger than I, can relate to! I love it!

  12. kaykuala says:

    So many more strange happenings than those we often see. One should not be taken in by just a few!. Nicely said Susan!


  13. haha a scientific haiku with all radars… ha I love it Susan..

  15. Meenakshi says:

    Loved the thought, yes radar is both innocent and incapable of depicting the storm.

  16. brudberg says:

    Nice way of depicting a storm, and those radar images sure are beautiful.

    radar-swirled clouds

    radar-swirled clouds – very unique!

  20. I watch Doppler profiles all the time and occasionally just sit after a long night watching the swirls stepping through on their restricted forecast sequence or freeze-frame on a particularly aesthetic synoptic. I haven’t yet composed poetry over one so you beat me hands down there! Great stuff.

    ps. I could ruin the romance of the question of how houses would show – but I won’t!

  21. Oh, you should totally write it–I have barely scratched the surface here…
