Surfeit of Storms

Written for:  Poetic Bloomings2, Prompt #406 - Weathering Storms

"In light of Ian and the devastation left in its path, let’s write of weathering storms. We may write about hurricanes, blizzards, electrical storms, or storms of life. When trouble blows in, what does it look like? How do you cope? Or, maybe you are the storm?"

Whether or not
you weather storms
well, there is no
getting used to

Here is your weather
report for the next
ten days:

Tsunamis followed
by tornados, with
ensuing cyclones
and hurricanes.

If you cannot handle
the weather forecast,
tune in to the dastardly
deeds of Putin or 
the crushing crusade
of Al Khamenei.  Confine
the storms to your head.
Mine brew nicely there.

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
