Stormwatch (Five Haikus As One)

the world is now still
expectation fills the air
we wait for the storm

the first wind’s caress
breathing new life in my skin
we wait for the storm

the trees fall silent
and the blackbirds pause for thought
we wait for the storm

a grey cloud wanders
clutching at the fighting sun
we wait for the storm

heaven sings intent
a chorus of raindropped notes
the wait is over
