The Long and Short of it

The prompt this week at Verse First is The Long and Short of it:

say what you must in the quickest and simplest way possible.

and that means a haiku

Nature's fury photo from TV one news video

Mother Earth angry 
She's warning us to behave
Worst storm in decades

The storm was scary
Thundering winds lashing rain
Carnage everywhere

(see my post on my photo blog for more details - worst storm in 45 years hits Wellington with winds upto 200kmph)

  1. Very beautifully described the heart wrenching condition of mother earth, hope all of us heed this.

    1. Thanks Vandana. I think it's time we listened to her.

  2. When a child errs , a mother scold, punishes depending upon the intensity of the mistake.Likewise humans play with environment and Mother Nature has to lash her fury.

    1. So true Kalpana - we are not taking care of our Earth and we need to.

  3. Immaculate...! Very beautifully penned.

  4. It's been a rocky summer so far...we've had nothing but T-storms and rain...crazy!

    Wishing you a beautiful Fourth of July, Leslie!
