Lightning

Phantom branches
Sparking grayscale to silhouettes
Erratic circuits
Illuminating grounded brethren

 

Volcano

Ember streams
Etching crumbling shorelines
Carving riverbanks
With molten destruction


Tornado

Spiral softly
Beautiful liberation
Cleansing fields
With windswept chaos

Haha yes, I'm quite aware of that. The only reason the title is as it is is because in the class where I was learning to write these, the teacher made it VERY clear that a haiku did not necessarily NEED to be 3 lines with the 5-7-5 structure. I was confused, since my whole life (though it hasn't been that long so far) I've been taught that a haiku is 5-7-5, but she worked very hard to "broaden our minds" and get us out of that habit. Whether it's correct or not, poems like these are what I turned in and what she referred to as "dynamite haiku," so here they are, labeled as such. But thank you

@StarsetXavier Nice haikus! But I think you need to know that haikus are poems with THREE verses with the syllable rhythm of 5-7-5. Just FYI.
