Three Flaring Haiku


F-22 Testing "Flares"

a flare
a perfect kiss
simple truth

harmony flares
dazzeling melody
flashy music

lights flaring
pots and pans tossed in air
poltergeist

I usually don’t post a picture after the fact, but I found this one and just had to. A totally cool USAF picture after the flare test was executed. What remains seems to be an angel.

About zongrik

For those of you who do not know the handle "zongrik," that would be Bat-Ami Gordin. Most people call me "Tammy." Bat-Ami means "daughter of my nation" in Hebrew. It's a heavy name to carry around. I answer to either name. I also answer to "mama." Some Basic Things about me: Animal lover, mom, poet/writer, dramatic soprano, photographer, teacher/tutor, CERT/Technician and, oh yeah, aerospace engineer. I consider myself "The Astro-Poet." To learn more about the origins of the word "zongrik" see whats-a-zongrik?
