Haboob

Haboob2

A type of intense gravity
named and described
in the winds –

the collapse
is dust
in a direction opposite,
or release precipitation
outward from
downburst.

It blows dry –
loose silt and clay,
a wall cloud –
a cloud approaches
with no warning
as it evaporates –

hot phenomenon
mud Eye
for anyone who must –
anyone who reaches the ground.

. . . . .

One thought on “Haboob

  1. Ravitte – I was so glad you picked up on “haboob” as that word stuck with me, too, from this week’s readings. You have created a haboob sensibility with your piece it seems – especially appreciated the end where the haboob becomes personified/transformed. Really evocative.
