Art in the Mist of a Hurricane

IMG_4545

Amidst the ruins

following a hurricane’s fury

lies an esoteric monument

not made in a hurry

 

Compassion is expressed

for a way of life lost

created out of remnants of wood

knowing the cost

 

Fury in a storm

communities wiped out

a national tragedy

there is much fallout

 

Many people flee

having lost all they had

no way to recover

all is sad

 

A small piece of wood

a monument to what has passed

hope has returned

optimism to last

 

The communities are rebuilt

the people have returned

prospering now

with lessons learned

 

Carvings of art

along the highway

may we never forget

those lost on that day
