Haiku – "Teacup" / "Storm"

Riding the teacups,
Laughing through endless summers,
Long since forgotten

Life in the bunker,
Battening down the hatches
Waiting for the storm

Weather front forming,
Clouds gather over China:
Storm in a teacup!

These haiku combine two separate challenges – Haiku Horizons and TJ’s Household Haiku Challenge. When I first saw TJ’s prompt this week – “teacup” – my first thought was something based on the phrase “storm in a teacup”, which is a convenient 5 syllables. I tried to resist, but when the haiku horizons prompt was “storm”… Well, that just seemed like serendipity!
