Tempest

Shattering stillness with its fury
An ominous sight indeed
Our future is unknown before us
Anxiety is its feed

The rain and wind slash at us
As the sun ducks low to hide
Screams as we run for the hill
To flee the rising tide

Howling gales chill our bones
As sirens loudly blare
We rush to our homes- to safety
Hoping to find family there

The tempest’s wrath unending
Limitless energy cast
Huddled in darkness, we think as one
“How long can this storm last?”

Babes cry out for mother
From fear of wind and rain
Although the storm seems gone now
It’s not the last hurricane

Written by a Minnesotan, me, with loved ones on the East Coast, during Hurricane Sandy.
