A Sign From the God of Posts

In the entry below, I note that the NHC discussion correction looked like Haiku. My brain being what it is, I then thought “What fun ~ a Hurricane Haiku Hullabaloo!” Googling proper haiku format to set ground rules, I immediately came across this informative page containing THIS timely, hurricane related GEM:

kono dote-ni(5) noboru-bekarazu(7) keishichou(5) :
“Do Not Climb This Levee – The Police Department”

Seems the auguries
are clear for poetry here.
Have a whack at it.

    Emily would too
