Hawaiian Hurricane Haiku

1.)

Hurricane, they say

be safe, get to higher ground

this must be the calm

 

2.)

Winds are picking up

the palm trees are swaying now

still only sprinkles

 

3.)

Hurricane winds blow

a lost pigeon finds the barn

lone sanctuary

 

4.)

The goats are grazing

they hardly notice the storm

where is all the rain?

 

5.)

Was it all just hype?

I remember Katrina,

now that was a storm!

 

6.)

Moloka’i is fine

they call it Pule O’o,

“Powerful prayer”

 

 

 

 

About soitgoes1984

I was born and raised on land stolen from the Pocumtuc. I now live on a small island in the middle of the Pacific ocean, on land that was stolen more recently, from the Hawaiians. I am addict, struggling to kick the habit of fossil fuel. This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License.
