Raging Storm – #Haibun

Snow Flower

Ignorant in bliss
Struck by a blizzard of doubt
The storm rages on
A word can stop the frenzy
Calm my mind back to delight

This was written for Colleen’s Weekly Poetry Challenge.  The key words today were “Joy” and “Fury”.  Following her suggestion, I didn’t use the words, I used only synonyms.

A fourth Nor’easter in the last three weeks is predicted.  I’m wondering when March will start “lambing up” since it has certainly been lioning all month!

Note 2 – The photo at the top was from an October snowstorm that left over 3 feet (1 meter) of heavy snow back about a decade ago.  The flowers were still in bloom…
