haiku poem 2

hail

loud hail overnight
three times woken eyes open
finger nails tapping

going out daylight
fast hail spots grass hat coat white
ice woman moving

cold outside hail wind
hard ice unceasing descent
front door home again

warm inside look out
watch storm black sky develops
gravel  thrown at glass

I love the brevity of haiku. For me it sums up the clarity and simplicity of Japanese thingummy-wotsit. ...and you've caught all of that with this.

We haven't had hail in a while here. Lots of sleet though. Beautiful writing!
