I received all your well-wishes before and I treasure them. Hey, I'm a poet.Gimme a topic and I write! I have a topic....


The evening is quite peaceful.
The air is slightly warm.
We're going through what experts call
The calm before the storm.

There's nothing in this tranquil scene
To raise cause for alarm.
A night like any other, it's
The calm before the storm.

There's only one thing missing.
I can hear no birds outside.
The lizards, which abound in droves,
Have also gone to hide.

It invokes an eerie feeling
That things are not quite the norm.
God's creatures are familiar with
The calm before the storm.

Our fate is in His hands now
To keep us safe from harm
And, hopefully, we'll get to see
The calm after the storm.

PDV: Stop tempting me to get my words mixed up...*g*

Seriously: I hope the calm does come and quickly..

May the storm take a turn,
and head to sea,
so safely sound you may be.
For if Floyd takes you over his knee,
not a pretty sight will we see.

Good luck, and best wishes I send your way.
