After the Storm


Hurricane had past

Not a window left in place

Murmur of black birds

Floats quietly through the house

And not a soul left in sight

  1. A home with windows out and left standing is a devastating sight – I see a few in the countryside and can’t help think how the porches used to be full of laughter and family. Nicely captured.
