Learning: a Power Outage Haiku


Last weekend, we lost power three times during a blustery snowstorm. The official total at the Milwaukee airport was about 9 inches of wet, heavy, sloppy snow. We were lucky that our house warmed up between outages and that the only place we had to go was outside to shovel. Most of the snow has since melted. Read on to find four more haiku I wrote during the storm.


Tomorrow is the first day of National Poetry month! I plan to post a poem a day. Come back and visit!


Mary Lee has the Poetry Friday Roundup at A(nother) Year of Reading. Enjoy!

We lost power during a snowstorm last weekend. Surprise! It turned into an opportunity to write Power Outage haiku.
