Haiku is to poetry as espresso is to coffee.

Yes, Adelaide, it's as though the clouds are following her whims. But they are clouds, which may give just the right touch of ambiguity. Thanks.

How did you survive the hurricane?
We had lots of wind and rain, but no trees down and no outages, much to our surprise. We often get outages with much less wind and rain.

We never lost power and spent much of the evening listening to the wind and watching the storm on TV. A tree went down in the middle of the courtyard, but no harm was done. Except to the tree.
