Haiku 34 - Oklahoma Cycle

	

        Dim sunrise,
	gray day, darkness
	Winter sadness.
	
		•

	Sweet sunrise,
	warning sirens.
	Spring threat.
	
		•

	White-hot sunrise,
	burnt crops.
	Summer killing.

		•

	Cool sunrise,
	dead falling leaves. 
	Autumn closure.

    I woke this morning thinking about tornados, and this just popped into my head. I guess it's the coming bad weather. Jack
