Haiga -The Dance of Thunder

The dance of thunder
Flashes of silver adorn
The deep blue night sky

The dance of thunder
Intermittent claps rattle
Aboard London Eye

The dance of thunder
Lighting up the London sky
Big Ben gleams bright



This picture was taken by your's truly aboard the London Eye on a rainy, stormy evening with a raging thunderstorm a few years ago. A most ill opportune time to catch the splendor of the London Eye. Writing this Haiku made me re-visit the wonderful evening I spent with my brother.  In hindsight this was the most beautiful thunderstorm I've ever had the fortune to experience. 
To lovely memories!!!

             I am eternally grateful to Chèvrefeuille for the daily Haiku prompts at Carpe Diem Haiku KaiThis post is for the Haiku prompt on Carpe Diem Special #144, Kala Ramesh's fifth haiku "thunderclap"

  4. High in the Eye the thunder and lightning would be frightening, I think. Maybe. Maybe not.

    1. Only one capsule was filled. 6 of us in the lonely eye with thunder and lighting! But I'm actually not afraid of storms. It was our only chance to witness the Eye. So we took it cursing our luck. But it was wonderful to see London through the Eye of a storm (Encapsulated)! A most unique and memorable experience.
