Poem of the Week: Haiku #575
I mostly post my poetry first on Instagram, (unless it is a patron-exclusive poem).  Then, each Sunday here on the blog, I post the poem that has got the most Insta likes.
If you’re on Instagram, let’s follow each other. You’ll find my account Orna Ross.poetry here.
The poems are inspired by photographs, sometimes taken by me, sometimes by others.

My most popular poem on Instagram this week was a haiku in 5-7-5 form, inspired by a picture of a thunder-and-lightning storm.

I love haiku, those little snapshots in words that capture the mood of a moment. I mostly love how they make me focus and become present.

And now for this week’s poem:

lightning flares through clouds
thunder rolls and darkness splits
into liquid night
