September Haiku

hurricane forecast–
from all directions
blue sky

chrysanthemum buds
a peek of magenta
on the tips

Russian sage
bees and butterflies…
butterflies and bees

Oh, I'm hip to that Russian sage-
watched the insects outside the hospital in the gardens during a recent stay.

Hi Justin, I suggest you check out http://www.ahapoetry.com/ for information on writing haiku as well as other informative web sites. Haiku, by the way, is the same in the singular and plural. Hurricanes occur in late summer and early fall. I have used it as a kigo. Haiku does not use personification as you have done in your haiku in Line 3. I received your e-mail. Are you Roy? or Justin?
