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? 😉 Grab your galoshes and words and wade on in.

Marie’s Haze


I’m not observant.
You’d be amazed at how much
blows over my head.

I’m like memes that say
“I was today years old when”
I fin’lly noticed ‘this’.

It often seems like
thoughts swirl around in my brain,
and can’t seem to land.

And obvious things
don’t click … until they do.  Like
Dorothy’s last name.

Walt’s Weather


The storm begins.
The mist of a drizzle.
Drip, drip, drip,
then a deluge.
That’s read tsunami.
The storm is upon us,
will we weather the storm?
Nothing can stop it!
