Please excuse the comma splices, tense changes, verbosity, etc. I was just a youngin' and now I realize the error of my grammatical ways. Plus, I preferred the flowery and descriptive writing styles of the early 19th century and beyond rather than the short, journalistic post-Hemingway-style of writing. I love intense imagery and descriptions in general. Still deciding whether I should edit my old poetry for grammar mistakes or take the Beatnik approach and fuck it.

Disclaimer: I only wrote/write on bad days. Grand days have never inspired me enough to write as I've always used writing as an outlet. A majority of my poetry is angsty, dark humored, or depressing, however, I don't have depression, and I'm not self-destructive or suicidal by any means. My writing is mostly a tenfold representation of the kind of day I was having at the time. Embellishing the realities of my bad days on paper helped turn them into good days. Not sticking my head into an oven anytime soon (or ever, actually). :P +10 points if you got the reference.

Thanks for reading! Feel free to comment

The Weather Haiku Collection

Rain Drops

raindrops dive slowly
to the many umbrellas
far below the clouds


sunshine beams down low
to cities, parks, and beaches
many people hope


snow cascading from the sky
miraculous white
blanketing the land beneath


raging winds torment the coasts
placid winds near the main-lands


drops of sorrow descending
faster and faster
sun appears and joy ascends

Haiku isn't really my thing and your language is rather simplistic but it's nice and to say you have so few words, you've actually used quite a lot of imagery.
