One Deep Breath

Imminent storm -
Tropical winds send clouds racing
To protect the moon.

Tropical storm Alberto joined us during our vacation in Florida this week. One windy evening I looked skyward to see the heavens covered with ragged clouds hurrying by, gathering in a protective clump around the moon.

For more haiku go here.

Beautiful Haiku - and such a timely topic for you! Hope all the hurricanes blow right by and don't stop.

Oh Becca, what a positive spin for a potentially negative experience. Thank goodness Alberto didn't get any stronger. Lovely imagery.

Loved your haiku this week, Becca. Remembering that I wanted to participate in One Deep Breath would have been far from my mind if I were near Alberto. What presence of mind to turn a stormy time into a ray of sunshine to share with us!
