The snow is falling –
The wind is blowing –
And the ocean is rising

Notes to this poem…
Halifax is currently under a huge blizzard with up to 70 cm of snow expected. There is gale force winds above 100 km/h. However, on top of that, there was high tide at 930 AM with a storm surge that basically put the ocean above the waterfront boardwalk. I don’t know how to incorporate a share a video on Facebook that I saw but that’s what inspired this storm haiku. 🙂
The H-series poems comprise of haiku composed while I was not engaged in some activity during which I frequently composed poetry. That is why these are called the Inactive Haiku collection.
