1781



lightning
to show the way
at pre dawn

and stormy winds -
yet not the full brunt of
lady Patricia

she has ravaged
Mexico
she longs
now to slumber

i too return
to slumber land there to find
a cauldron

steamy hot water
when i awake surely
i will brew tea

May you both sleep sound!

Old Egg said...

Yes, that world wide news luckily turned out to be less damaging than forecasted. Whatever our choice of beverage in the morning it certainly allows us to start the day afresh. I normally start with tea then coffee a couple of hours later!

Mary said...

Brewing tea seems like the best thing to do in such a circumstance.

Wendy Bourke said...
