Vastness of debris
Calm eye with raping wide path
Her name, Katrina!

June 1st marks the beginning of the yearly vigil for the Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico as the 2011 Hurricane Season commences. At least six research groups, including the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), predict we are due for an above average season – 3 – 6 Major Storms for the Atlantic – Gulf Coast regions.

The breakdown prediction during the 2011 season, which spans June 1 to November 30, NOAA is forecasting 12-18 tropical storms, 6-10 hurricanes and 3-6 major hurricanes with winds of 111 mph or greater.

On a personal note – I hope their predictions are far from reality!!

ADD: the names for Tropical Storms and Hurricanes for the Atlantic Season 2011 are: the list of hurricane names for 2011:

Arlene, Bret, Cindy, Don, Emily, Franklin, Gert, Harvey, Irene, Jose, Katia, Lee, Maria, Nate, Ophelia, Philippe, Rina, Sean, Tammy, Vince
and Whitney

  1. the theme of the potluck seems to fit good enough with the weather in many places around! Nature can be fierce, even with sweet name like Katrina!


  2. Great haiku! The weather has been devastating lately. Living where I do natural disasters are almost non existent so I am fortunate, I get so worried though hearing about what others are suffering. The town my mom lives was nearly destroyed she made alright though

      Olivia – hurricane season is just starting. This post was in regards to Katrina and her devastation. I believe her name is retired. However, I added the scheduled names for this upcoming year! Thank you for visiting!

    Glad I am living in central Brazil now instead of Florida where I was born! I have been through some big ones, but as kids, we loved them. We stayed up all night, and played Monopoly by candle light and ate pop corn! It was exciting and when the eye passed very eerie. Great Haiku, as usual, Rebecca. Hugs, pat

    Great poem and illustration. The predictions of more storms does not suprise me. The run up to the shift in 2012 is bound to be stressful. Hopefully from then we can build a stable and more spiritual life for the new age.
