Dedicated to those who love us.


Mother Nature did her best

Yet our home withstood the test

Life had a few personal storms to unleash

That shook greatly my inner peace

Into each life some challenges fall

Good and bad I need them all

Our roof is strong, our home is sound

And from these challenges I will rebound

Love and friendship will pull me through

This much I know is always true

I have no great wisdom to impart

Just to share I love you from my heart

Rose, very often “we” as mere mortals are reminded of the awesome power of “Mother Nature,” my gifted friend. It is by her unyielding power that allows “us” as so-called “human beings” to create the necessary bond needed to survive her vicious onslaught when she is running rampant. Hopefully it is that bond that allows us to embrace the incredible beauty she bestows upon us each and every day, if we permit that astonishing beauty to overcome her wrath. It always saddens me deeply, whenever human beings cannot form the common affiliation needed that will enable “us” to move beyond that destruction which shows no difference as to what or who is in her way when she unleashes her pent-up ferocity. I enjoyed the read, and I do agree with Tommy, you have a lot of wisdom. Thank you for sharing it and your work. Take good care and be well.

Having passed the test always makes one feel stronger, right? Nice analogy with a house in the storm. Franz

Amazing how strong building material in a home is to protect us from Mother Nature but as you point out here even more amazing how strong friendship and love is to really create stronger material to help us along when life deals us personal storms. I disagree with you having no wisdom Ms Rose, this write here has ton of wisdom for us that really take time to read it. Nice one for sure,

What a gorgeous song of thanksgiving. I certainly wish I'd read this beautiful poem this summer when I was dealing with Hurricanes Charley, Frances, Ivan and Jeanne. When it was all over, inspite of the horror and damage, there was so much I was thankful for.

*The Storms of Discontent* is a beautifully crafted poem with silky flow.

This brings back memories of this summer when three hurricanes came over our house. It was very frightening, but the love of the whole community kept us all calm through the entire storm and aftermath. Excellent poem. ~ Sara
