Haiku (midnight thunderstorm)

by Gypsy Blue Rose

midnight thunderstorm
soothes the echoes of my mind--



Haiku is a Japanese poetry form. The main characteristics are: 17 Japanese syllables in a 5/7/5 form but in English it can be less; brief, the rule of thumb is what can be said in one breath; insightful; about nature and the way humans relate to nature. There are many other rules.
