after the storm pass
the leaves on branches hang still
shiny, spent, dripping
exhausted from the uproar
the stray cat stays in hiding

Tall Grass

tall grass tossed about
by strong winds on the tail of
storm clouds

Inspiration:

[…] “Haiku is the poetry of nature and nature is always in motion. Seasons come and go, the moon changes every 28 days and so on, the only thing which is steady and without clear motion is our sun, that big star of our Milky Way around which the planets are rotating.” […]Chèvrefeuille, your host
Here is an example of what I call an “undou” haiku:
old pond
frog jumps in
sound of water

A broken signboard banging
In the April wind.

wind chimes
resonate against the buildings

huge waves
hurled onto rocky shores
sounds of coming storm

I am trying a new form of poetry called the Lantern poem. So called as when done it should assume the shape of a lantern with a syllable count as follows
1-2-3-4-1

The 2nd, 3rd, and 4th lines further describe the 1st and the last one is a synonym to the first…..pretty cool!!

rain
heavy
all last night
lulls on tin roof
