• Weather



    Encouraging rust, the clammy raging wind banged the lock on the shutter

    Birds took to their journey all in a flutter

    Cacophony filled the air, as the angled rain burst along the hillside

    No where to run and hide

    Buckets and watering holes burgeoned, spilling over

    Dry spaces were few, it seemed

    Small animals wriggled into small places for cover

    Careless now, the wind howled from its core

    Nothing to anchor it, with more in store

    A gale, indeed was coming ashore

    -M. Jacobs

    There was a winter storm that blew my way a couple days ago- although, the season is diffrent, still this poem brings me this memory-as all these ducks were crying out and moving west overhead, and the cool wind kept tasting my cheeks as I watched them, I swore right then, I would savor that memory forever..this has recalled the promise I made to myself before that storm-you are amazing!-Maddi



    Coming from an artist that I truly admire very much, it means quite a lot that you enjoyed Nor'Easter. It's funny how that poem came out. Thanks again.

    Well done - the cloud is advancing and little shelter to be found. Get out that umbra-maker, if you can hold it down.



    No doubt, get under a place that won't blow around. Thanks for your comments.

    I've lived in New England all of my life. This poem captures the imagery of the nor'easter to a tee, Trust me - I've lived thru many. Concise and to the point, while saying so much! Another Great Write and Read!!



    thanks, I dreamt it and I wrote it. I appreciate your kindness.

    We've all seen this one many times... It's thrust is never welcomed, and, in it's wake - always a sigh of relief.. A very nice, short write..



    Thank You.

    In science one tries to tell people, in such a way as to be understood by everyone, something that no one ever knew before. But in poetry, it's the exact opposite.

    Franz Kafka (1883-1924) Czech writer.
