a cold front moved through at 6.00 am today
the wind picked up and the few remaining leaves flew past the windows
and the sky turned a deep grey...a snow sky
I was glad to be in a warm house
watching the news from across the world is hard to comprehend
even though it happens here
seeing those faces and that destruction
makes one feel so many things...
so anything that isn't right or perfect or just so
we have warm houses and food and water
I wish someone would tell them how many people are trying to help
that the destruction is so big and so wide it's hard to get there
they are coming as fast as they can
if there is ever to be a next time and let's all hope there isn't
make sure the people understand what it is that's coming
I saw a man last night, on the news, who said they didn't understand what a storm surge is
he said if the authorities had said
they would have moved, left, evacuated.
They put the children in the school...
but the water came and took them away............
