Tempest's power swirls,
Stuns springs timid emergence.
Nor'easter punched in.

Wonderful poem and amazing snowstorm photos! Such bizarre weather we're all having these days. I miss the four seasons!

This is a wonderful set of photographs and a beautiful haiku to go with them. It's hard to imagine that you are having snow when here it's bright and sunny and springlike - oh! sorry, I suppose I shouldn't be rubbing it in like this:):)

Rel, your haiku feels like a power surge, well matching the progressive photos. Energy, indeed!

Robin put it well, a power surge. Love the combo of the photo series with your poem. . . I'll take the snow here.

I feel for you Rel. It's been truly strange this spring/winter/summer... who knows what it is.

Great haiku.

Pictures of a snow storm...beautiful, so is the haiku that goes with them.

I was reading your previous post, Rel, about your other identities. I think we all have them, but obviously some are more in touch with themselves than others. Fascinating.

Once more, beautiful picture, Rel and thought-filled words. :)

I've been very busy this week, so I'm behind in visiting my friends, of which I class you as one. :)
