White Noise

White noise is a random signal with a flat (constant) power spectral density.

White noise - signal contains equal power within any frequency band with a fixed width.

(From Wiki.)


That white noise -
with us

This was written some days ago. Trying to "age" it, as a good old wine. Then we got sunny March days.


That white silence -
the snowstorms
left us.

This busy world
around us -
Sunny Friday

a freezing snowflake
lost her home

loose snowflakes
seeking a warm home

Ejecting a threeliner

Sometimes a writer got an idea from it's quite impossible to get rid of ... Here is one my struggling dated March 2013:


a vomiting cloud
emerging snowflakes
all over

Vomiting; some matter ejected from the stomach through the mouth to throw up. - ?

Checked some synonyms for throw: bowl, cast, fling, heave, hurl, pitch, sling, toss

a tossed cloud?

the clouds heaving

next sketch, # 2:

fresh snowflakes
emerging all over -
a vomiting cloud

Not so nice, this whole idea; vomiting cloud?

# 3:

new whirling snowflakes
all over wintry fields

Rewrote that as

# 4:

new whirling
snowflakes emerging
all over [wintry] fields

- Because "wintry" not needed, there is already at least one snowflake = a winter kigo.
Then I tasted the word "hurl" and tried it:

# 5:

from hurling clouds
snowflakes emerging
all over

next one is the latest on this battlefield:

# 6:

clouds hurling
emerging snowflakes
all over

I think a good poems must include at least one verb. And others say haiku must include a kigo word. Here it is snow(flake) = winter.

So, this seems to be a haiku?
