Day 18 “Storm Warning”


“Storm Warning”

It’s steamy in south Florida tonight.
Slick air is thick and tastes of salty fog.
A quiet’s fallen with no birds in sight.
Staunch, ocean wave rolls in with stiff resolve.

Old palm trees twist and wave.  Their hula skirts
fall quickly to the dying breeze beneath;
await a windy swirl, begin to flirt
with light`ning as it sparkles on the sea.

Expectant morn, she creeps upon this beach
as higher rising tide begins to warn
of something coming just before the breach:
a calmness wavering before the storm.

Then, boom! This hurricane will boast awhile:
this dame arrives with sudden, raucous style.
