The Evil Spirit

off west Africa rising from the ocean’s warmth. . . a white ghost awakes thunder on the edge of the spirit’s calm cold eye. . . wickedness surges vomiting hard rains the spirit whirls insanely. . . trees below tremble unprotected souls scream inside a blast of sand. . . clothes caught on bushes strong structures shatter by the time the spirit winds down. . . mercy washed away (according to one source, the word hurricane has a Carib origin meaning God of Evil.) For the Hurricanes -Only Haiku Poetry Contest of SandyIvy Davis

    Nice one Andrea ;} I need to learn to write better haiku's. I used to always write about the ocean waves, as teenager. Thank you for reading Sun and Moon,,,, it was spur of the moment . I like the way you wrote this one.
