Good Lord. All this time, I've been spelling "Caribbean" wrong...oooops. LOL

Maybe I've had one too many tequilas....

Palm trees raise their heads
and dare  the storm
to ruin their night:
they dance on the wind
of a hurricane,
snapping their fronds to
drinking refreshment
pouring from the skies
in great abundance.
On occasion, one
loses his bal
and falls to the floor ...
not enough sense to
stay out of the rain.

(c) 2005, Karla Dorman.

If I'm ever caught in a hurricane again, I will always think of this poem! I particularly liked lines 7 to 9 (including "funky Caribbean beats.") When I first saw the title of the poem, I was expecting a wild drinking story, from someone's college days. :-) Joe
