The Storm

It rages without mercy
Howling of the winds
Echos of the cries
Of those who were lost
 
The unstoppable force
With no immovable object
to block its path
It pushed on.
 
Many lost loved ones
Many left stranded
Many left with nothing
Yet still they push on
 
The storm is passing
Its damage has done
But all will stand strong
The storm has come and gone.

My heart goes out to those effected by hurricane sandy. We’ll be getting a bit of the wind and rain here in Halifax, but nothing like what was felt in NYC or even in southwestern Nova Scotia.

My heart also goes out to those who were on the tall ship HMS Bounty when it sank off the coast of North Carolina from Sandy’s ferocious winds and rough seas. I hope you all get home safe and I hope they find the last crew member. To the family of Claudene Christian, despite the fact that you’ll probably never see this, I’m deeply sorry for your loss.
