Wounded – Hurricane Sandy 2012

Posted on November 2, 2012 by Liz Cosline No Comments

They warned you were coming

They saw you

They talked about you

They showed your colors


`You were massive

You were menacing

You stretched 2000 miles

You came along the shore


Slowly at first

As if a marching army

As you brought clouds

Mixed with rain

And your unforgiving winds


The moon was your partner

The tides your friend

You conspired to come together


Then you turned

Along side the shore was not good enough

And you turned


You caused devastation

You took relentlessly

You striped

You flooded

You killed


Yet Sandy,

In your wake

There is power

There is hope




Coming together


You have gone

But the people

The people will rise again


You will have made them stonger.
