Storm Passing - Haikus
by Elizabeth Southwood (before Sackville died, winter ‘00‚
poetry data base would not accept a new poem 5/12/00)

A thunderous boom:
my soggy cat shoots across
wet grass, raps screen door.

Split lightning zaps down:
I want to hide in my bed,
pillow over head.

I open the door,
cat scoots in and I, towel
in hand, fluff him dry.

Distant thunder fades,
lightning is gone, lights are on.
Cat purrs, safe and warm.
