Nature seems so harsh at times, but it is her way to ensure that only the best and the strongest inherit the future.

When you have the time, take a look at my haiku "Baby Quail Got Free". You might consider it "The Sudden Storm II".

Ha! Looks like we both had a simular idea. you wrote about a storm also. Blue refers to a bitter winter blast of cold air. My haiku is meant to imply a blue northerner. Thats a bitter cold winter storm blast of air that brings snow, that swips down into the states from the arctic. Horses react with great bursts of energy to these approching storms just before they reach them, sometimes days before anyone knows they are coming. Agape, Moses
