Storm damage

By D.L. FinnPublished about a year ago β€’ 1 min read

The wind tears through the white landscape,

I peek outside, my mouth agape.

Broken limbs, a snapped tree,

Lots of work waits for me.

For now, my home is the escape.

    Your words are so evocative I can feel that violent, icy wind. Well done, Denise πŸ’•πŸ™‚

    A well-crafted limerick, but I'm so sorry mother nature wreaked havoc in your woods!

  • Jan Sikesabout a year ago

    Excellent, Denise! Definitely lots of work ahead for so many.

    Love the twist on this one. For me, home is a sanctuary, but it's never an escape. I escape it to be in nature for a while. But you turned that on its head. Great job.
