Haiku For You
Powerful voice speaks --
Tumultuous trembling sky
Do you live in the Southwest? This poem reminds me of the rainy season in New Mexico! I can almost sense the static electricity in the air, smell the rain drying in the desert, see the myriad hues and vivid contrast of towering cloud formations and they dark underbellies, holding up the deep blue sky. Great job!--Mike Adamshttp://reasonable-thought.blogspot.com/
I have lived in many places, and I can sure see a sky like this over New Mexico. You described it really well. There is a magickal type of light that shines on spaces in New Mexico that provide an excellent source of drama in the sky.Thank you for dropping in.
Lovely Haiku! Just in time for thundershowers here in Colorado.
I used to live in Colorado, they had some of the most expressive skies I have ever seen. We could plan on thunderstorms between about 2:30 and 3:30 on afternoons where the weather was gearing up for it. Beautiful sunsets... expressive skies.
We had wonderful rain here this weekend, but the thunder did not sound its amazing voice.
I like the combination, as long as it is not too extreme. Some of the storms in the southeast can cause flash flooding in a matter of moments, but the sound, the sight, still fascinates me!
I could have sworn that we were going to hear thunder on Friday with the cold front coming through...and the sky just had that look, but there wasn't any. Another fantastic haiku. Going to miss these when the challenge is over!
Tracy, I may keep writing haiku, I have really enjoyed it through this challenge. I may opt to do it less than one per day though :-) We shall see.
I'm officially a fan of haiku and I owe that to you.
Oh that is fantastic! It honours me that you found a way to love it through me :-)
You are so good at the art of haiku!!Kathyhttp://gigglingtruckerswife.blogspot.com
Thank you Kathy. I think that when you have a passion for something (in my case words, and structuring them) it is natural to find a way to make it appealing. I appreciate your enjoyment of them.
Thunder, or a part of any storm is all right with me! The more it rocks the house the more I like it.
I'm with you Amy, it is such a powerful feeling and one that I enjoy immensely.
such a great metaphor the actual weather today! Lovely as always.
Thanks Sandra... we have sunshine here today... are you safe from the eastern snow?

A bold compliment, thank you.
Great image (even though I don't like thnderstorms!)
I really enjoy them Paula... such power within them.
This brought back a childhood memory. As kids, whenever we asked about the origins of thunder, I remember my late dad saying that it was God re-arranging the furniture...Lovely description... :)
Oh that's fun. I heard the bowling line, but never rearranging furniture... that's clever. hehehhe
Very nice! Yes the sky is the thunder's home!
Indeed it is :-)
The thunder in a distance is wonderful. The thunder clanging over my head, not so much. This is a magnificent and accurate piece of art. ♥
After spending time in the south east, I can understand that Jo. They have much more dramatic encounters with the thunder than we do in the north west. :-)
