Roaming the byways of literature

For the love of haiku – nowaki

Again Chevrefeuille has posted a fascinating challenge on Carpe Diem.

The nowaki is a kind of windstorm. The name means ‘field dividing wind’ and describes they way it forms a path through fields of crops.

The following is my haiku on this destructive wind.

The nowaki roars;
paths of flattened stalks appear;
silence follows.
