Haikai Challenge #151 (8/9/20): first (autumn) storm (hatsu arashi) / Darkness (Yami) #haiku #senryu #haibun #tanka #haiga #renga

Thunder, Lightning, Storm, Sky, Night

As Isaias struck in August, the first Autumn month of the traditional calendar, what better kigo could there be than first (autumn) storm (hatsu arashi)? As the storm caused blackouts that still plague other parts of the New York Metropolitan area, what better kigo can there be than darkness (Yami)? Therefore, haijin, you have a choice this week.

Write the haikai poem of your choice (haiku, senryu, haibun, tanka, haiga, renga, etc.) that alludes to either the first (autumn) storm (hatsu arashi), Darkness (Yami), or both!

Thunder and Lightning

thunder and lightning

darkness rules as the rain pours
