Haiku 108: Devastation

Winds have been blowing hard the last few days bringing 10% humidity and sucking away our snowpack. Here in SW Colorado we are having yet another year of below average snowpack and are in severe drought conditions. It does not bode well for a summer free of forest fires. So here's a haiku which, I think, says it all. (A footnote: I'm going back to 5-7-5 syllable haikus again rather than the free form I've been playing with for a while. I like the challenge of finding the right words.)

Winds of silent spring
bring no life but foreboding
of devastation.
