After Sidney (cloud tsunami)



Embedded image permalink

First #tornados in Melbourne, now cloud #tsunamis in Sydney. Australian weather: you are terrifying! #sydneystorm
: image by Robbi Bishop-Taylor @robbibt, 6 November 2015


the cold peach smudge sunset

no red sails
she had rather a wife be
in the blood
audible automotive rumble
tail lights
gears grinding down
rushing up the hill
winter nights enlarge
in winds or waters streams
require to be writ
cloud tsunamis
unto no body
these be her woordes

Wonderful poem, writ indelibly.

Love and other disasters.


We need a real rain to come soon.

Terrific poem, Tom. Nature red in tooth & claw, and equally scary when wet.

Can't help but admire the poem but also the Aussies who rush to fiddle with their iPhones to record Mother Nature at her best--or should that be worst?

The open question. You talking to me?

"You want to see something really fascinating?"

"You think I can't do it? You dare me?"
