Sandy

a storm snows and rains
a world plowing in her rage  
nature makes humble


©Ellie Daphne van Stralen 2012


Being - no longer - on line with a friend on the other side of the world experiencing hurricane Sandy I tried to express my feelings the moment the connection was 'gone' 
Shortest poem  and the first in this form I ever wrote...............


Hurricanes -Only Haiku Conest 
10th 	Sandy	Ellie Daphne van Stralen

    I appreciate your congratulations so very much! ........ Still can't believe that this first Haiku I ever wrote is IN the prize-winning line up - the other prize-winners make me humble but also realize what a privilege is it to be 10th in this quality -queue!

    Hello Ellie. - I recently learned to write Haiku poems. I have written 3 (Haiku X + XX + XXX) - Haiku is a very old form of writing - I've read a lot about this form - really exciting. - If this is your first it is very well written Ellie. - - oxox / / Anne-Lise :)
