Stephanie Thornton over at Hatshepsut, the Writing of a Novel is sponsoring a haiku blogfest this weekend. Since these 5-7-5 verses are usually nature related, it seemed timely to participate. Herewith please find my entry:
Trees sway, bend and crack
Shattered by hurricane winds
Dawn delivers calm
Head on over to Stephanie's blog to find links for more.
6:40 a.m. update. I wrote that haiku last night in anticipation. Dawn has indeed deposited calm. As for Earl, well, he delivered a great big nothing—all hype and no substance, that guy. It rained overnight and perhaps one gust of wind blew. Period. Earl's impact on us didn't even merit "wimp" status. I'd go for "blip."
Thank you all for your kind thoughts and prayers. They worked! Here's wishing you all a wonderful long-weekend. Enjoy your last blast of summer.
We are off to drag the tomato plants out of the garage.
Oh man, and I guess I have fake hurricane on the brain, because I forgot to mention KarenG's BBQ blogfest, which is being held over the Labor Day weekend. Click on the link: Coming Down the Mountain... to find those in attendance. I've had some fun reading so far!
