Autumn Storm

a gale force wind
among copper foliage
power lines spark

My response to Carpe Diem Celebrates Its 8th Anniversary October 2020: Carpe Diem 1830 Storm

For the second post of Carpe Diem’s celebration month, Chèvrefeuille has chosen a theme that fits the season.

In the UK, especially here along the North Norfolk coast, we have been experiencing stormy weather. Last week we lost power, trees were blown down and a seafront road blocked with sand, and we’re expecting more of the same this weekend. Autumn has two faces: one with golden colours and the other grey and stormy.

Our challenge is to write a haiku (classical or non-classical) on the theme of storm.

  1. We had a wowser of a windstorm last year that knocked out 80 power lines. We were without power for 24 hours, and it sucked. We need to put plastic over the windows this year to keep out the drafts and hopefully bring down the heating bill. Hopefully, the power won’t be knocked out again.

    1. Hi Cara! We should be used to power cuts after living in this area for 28 years, but they seem to be happening more frequently. No plastic over the windows but we have sandbags at the ready! Hope you’re keeping safe and well.
