Breath of Florence


Clouds churn the water

furiously closing escape

for the unprepared.


This week, Colleen chose ‘Plan’ and ‘Finish’ for her words.  Since most of my week has been literally planning for the biggest hurricane my state has ever seen (NC represent, woot woot!), I couldn’t bring myself to do anything other than a seasonal, weather focused haiku. 

If you believe in prayer or the power of good vibes, I’d much appreciate them.  Pretty nervous since we couldn’t board up our windows… If I’m not online for a while, you’ll know why.

    Your Haiku hit home. I’m from S. Florida so I know what you’re going through right now. I hope you’re safe from Hurricane Florence. Sending good vibes and prayers of protection your way.

    Amazing poetry, I didn’t understand first and then I read that it’s about the hurricane then read it back and completely got it and it’s perfectly captured. I hope everything turned okay. 🙂
