Hurricanes

Standard
Haiku On Hurricanes

Source:geology.com

Tight, captured – the eye

of silent wrapped fierce winds

moving over lands, hunt.

~.~.~.~.

Crawling, coming, came

striking a deadly blow, yes.

Washing objects away.

~.~.~.~

Grief stricken people

lamenting of winds and rain,

yet treading afresh.

~.~.~.

I choose the poetry form of  Haiku for this poem about hurricane because of its structure. Haiku creates that tight, powerful imagery through words that I believe works well with events such as hurricanes. When a hurricane moves it is either slow and deadly or fast and deadly and I look at a Haiku almost the same. The movement in a Haiku always hit with a purposeful force (well at least it should, hope I hit someone with a purpose force :P). Haiku and hurricanes moves with little words but effective ways to leave you breathless. I am new to this poetry form, very hesitant at first but moved by capabilities.
