I is for Ice Storm

For the second year I decided to participate in the A-Z Blogging Challenge.  Each April bloggers write for 26 days (Sundays off). Each day is a consecutive letter of the alphabet.

Today is April 10th   and the  Ironic letter I

And another Haiku from the Mother Nature section of The Bench

That icicle looks like the letter I – no?


Ice Storm

Mean, red, heaven’s eye

wind moans, pierces with death grip

trees shine icy, encrusted


Informally searching for your posts

Have you ever been caught in an ice storm? I think this winter just about all of us have.

    Not this winter, but a number of years ago, I got caught on the DC Beltway in an ice storm. Not fun at all.

    Oh boy, have we ever had ice this winter! The ice is so beautiful to look at, but beware of walking on it! Falling down can be lethal.
    I think you’ve captured that menace well in your verse. 🙂

    Great post! I love the way ice encases branches, making the trees look hauntingly beautiful (though not so much when ice encases my windshield). 🙂 Happy A to Z!

  4. I’ve never been caught in an ice storm, thank God. I do find icicles fascinating to look at, for some strange reason. Some of them, depending on shape and such, look like pieces of art. Beautiful piece, Sue. Enjoyed reading it.

  5. Very visual, Sue. I notice that this “immerses” your readers into memories of ice storms. Well done. 🙂

    I was close to Ottawa, in Gatineau when the big one hit – was it ’99 or ’00? Anyway, it was the one that took out practically the entire province of Quebec. Fun stuff!
    Nice haiku. 🙂

  7. Great piece Sue! I have been through many of an ice storm – in fact the damage from the ones this past winter are still apparent all over my property.
