Perfect word choice. "A fat and hungry bloom" is an especially pleasant and lovely description.
| Brenda Agaro chapter 1 . 8/16/2009
So vivid and thought provoking. Amazing imagery.

"Hungry bloom, rose-like" this is beautiful, I always thought roses had mouths, other flowers had eyes. Roses strike me as hungry for attention, in a way I guess like the wind...it always rears stronger when you forget about it, reminding you it can steal your hat/hairstyle and there ain't much you can do.
Winds slash/my body in half; I like how you literally slash the haiku up with the actual word "slash," visually and violently amplifying the point.
Resurfacing! I will get around to your other works when I have more time, you seem to have been very busy! Hope all is well.

Vivid and surprising. What a haiku should be. Well done. MD:77.

Lovely imagery. So little words, so little lines, so much said in them though. Nice job!

The description for your topic as "a fat and hungry bloom, rose-like" is fantastic. You made an amazing image with very few words. :)
"winds slash my body in half." I like this line for a couple of reasons. The word choice for 'slash' is nice and vivid; not 'stale'. And the tone for it isn't... sad or remorseful. Almost as if the speaker wants to be consumed or broken by the thunder storm. Very clever.

Good description of the clouds; I never would have thought of it as looking like a rose. But fat and hungry? For sure. It's a nice contrast.
| MallowsWins chapter 1 . 7/13/2009
Interesting description, it's a nice mixture of beauty and violence. Well done.

I don't know how you do it.
| S.C.R.E.A.M.I.N.G chapter 1 . 7/4/2009
Very nice imagery. It reminded me of the sky I saw today as I drove down the highway. I love the "fat and hungry bloom". It's just so ridiculously prompting of an image of the darkened clouds to me. You said a lot in 17 syllables. Good work.

"A fat and hungry bloom." This line is phenomenal! The word 'bloom' adds such vibrancy to the piece. I also liked the 'winds slash' part since it was very intense. Great work. :)
