rumbling winter storm

Carpe Diem Tan Renga Challenge Month May 30th: "rumbling winter storms" by Paloma

- - - - our host's introduction - - - -

Welcome at this penultimate episode of Carpe Diem's Tan Renga Challenge Month. Today I have a nice "hokku" written by one of our family members, Paloma. So we have a nice modern "hokku" to "play with".

Here is Paloma's "hokku", she wrote this one in December 2013:

Rumbling winter storm –
Ents are dancing with their wives –
ancient limbs entwined

Paloma was one of the first of the CDHK group to give my fledgling attempts at haiku a great deal of encouragement.  I can never thank her enough the the kind words that helped me get going on the hiaku path.  She is gifted, courageous in moving the edges of poetry and just generally a good egg.  Thanks for your beautiful hokku.

lightning rips the nighttime sky
while thunder plays its tunes -               petra domina
