We watched a really touching show on the Dust Bowl in my U.S. History class yesterday. Survivors discussed their experiences, and the experiences of their parents, and I almost cried a time or two. Their stories were sad, but their strength and determination was encouraging. So was their trust in God. It didn't rain in the midwest for approximately 7 years! (And, I was quite fascinated that it was about 7 years.) Anyways, this haiku came to me today randomly.
Desolate, barren ground. The wrath of God upon us. Seven-year Dust Bowl.
So, there it is. I was moved to write a haiku based upon watching an educational show. I am such a nerd.
