11/12/12 Poetry “Embrace The Day”

 

Sunny here in LA

Peace, calm with no delay

In the east, Sandy came

The perfect storm or so they say.

Waters rising, death, debris

Ships on shore, where they came to be.

Power lines lay, sparks fly

Dangers lurk, things gone awry.

But here in LA, the sun is high

The winds calm with a vacant blue sky

In the news we hear today,

“Enjoy your morning, embrace the day.”

Now I sit and watch TV,

A path of wreckage and despair, I see.

Anxiously waiting for daylight

As darkness all that lies in sight.

Hit most hard, the Jersey shore

Gone, erased as if battle torn

People wade thru water waist high

Pets displaced, rescue teams go by

But here in LA the sun is high

The winds calm with a vacant blue sky.

In the news we hear today,

“Enjoy your morning, embrace the day.”
