Lightning flash shoves cloudhaiku
Swirling wind scythes foam, sea roars

Thunder booms kick start

 

Target of Crossfire

Hurricane like bombhaiku
Razed home we found, framed, & wired

In tent bullets rain

Drunk girl slips
Mid-twerk on bartop
—Grinding halts.
Patrons gawk…
Her get up sloppy, mocked, filmed⁠—
She rumpshakes unphased!

Smoky Mountain Haze

Waterfall rush slakeshaiku
Forge smoke scents Chimney trail brush

Summit peeks through high

 

The Deft Marksman

Giant taunts
Pounds chest with war cries!
Warns David⁠—
Who draws sling…
Aims… hurls stone propelled lightning
…Stands with head held high
