Haiku Monday – The Sound of Metal

Serendipity was the winner of Haiku Monday last week.  This week, she chose as her theme “metallic sounds”.  Words to describe sound, a great concept.  This haiku challenge is starting to make me do crazy things–like hiking to an overpass in a snowstorm to take a photo of the local steel mill.  Worth it, though. So worth it.

Snow falls. Winter’s kiss
muffles hot steel’s insistent
clang. Hush! Steam rises.

Silent hollow pipes.
Nature exhales one soft breath.
Perfect bell tones sing.
