Late Afternoon Storm Haiku

Late Afternoon Storm Haiku
[Wilmington, NC]


Storm fells big branches
while gossamer lines linger—
the strand between us


Long after strong rain
moves on, forgotten, moss on
branches remembers


Light flickers inside and out.
Dove on shed roof hears
a thousand unseen frogs


The day starts again
hours before dusk. In sunlight
palmetto fronds drip.
