Puffing up with barometric might

He swirls across the warm sea

Moisture fueling his watery fire

and his wind shearing the sky

In an over tightened embrace

his sideways glance spins like a backwards clock

recreating Cyclops mythological fable in 2004

The beast roars with a low pressure growl

as all the sooth sayers polish their crystal balls

Oh no, no, no…man is no match

against what nature has in store

So he strikes a path of most destruction

from west-to-east coast shores

and in the center I await

with Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck

and the rest of the cast in our Islands of Adventure

Hurricane Charley has come to town

Friday the 13th of August.

She wins every time, yet, we as mere mortals believe we can overcome her with technology! Not likely! Terrible destruction yet she can bring us so much happiness too. Thank goodness every member of my family and friends in that area are okay. Excellent work Sara.

...and charley left one hell of a mess! glad you made it through! glad i don't live there; living in tornado alley is bad enough!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in tx., karen lynn. :(

(been in one tornado; no damage to my place, but the apts. just up the way from us got smacked. we did lose power for several hours, and then, another storm rolled on through--no tornadoes this time, thank goodness!--, and it knocked out our power for two days. it was NOT fun!)
