Tonight's Forecast: Rain

A Poem, Inspired by Geraldine Monk, Written Using Sources From Homer's Odyssey and the Weather Forecast

Tonight's Forecast: Rain

Max temp: 8C

Tonight, showers easing.

Min temp: -2c

My men were thrown into the water,

and bobbing like sea crows,

they were washed away

on the running waves.

Waves. Waiting. Will

soon swallow my men.

Eat them whole.

And, about me, rain

thrashes down.

These will be wintry

over the hills and mountains,

and will become more frequent

during this afternoon and evening.

One or two of the showers

may be thundery.
