Hurricane Poem - Poem by Max Reif

The hurricane hits,
You batten down your hatches,
Try to secure everything.

It's all a big mess.
Hurricanes don't
Respect our boundaries!

Soon you're just trying to survive,
Holed up in a small, safe room.
You doze off. When you awake,
Everything is still. You venture outside.

You gape, speechless!
The hurricane has taken
All you've ever known
And re-arranged it,
Leaving it perfect, resplendent:
The beauty you've always dreamed of!

    Max - read Compassion (mine) and there is the horrible side of the event. It was written in honor of the survivors of Katrina.

    Love this one Max. Good vision of natures force blasting rubble away. (Report) Reply

    What a fantasy...but it is more prose than poetry, in my opinion.
