Poem for "Hurricane Harvey" 2017

Poem for "Hurricane Harvey" 2017

Down pours the rain
Pounding -n- drenching
Wind swirled thunder
Trapped in a home maze.

Trees crashing outside
Sirens roaring "bye"
Water begins seeping in
Grab the photos...run!!

Ankle deep !
knee deep!
Goin to the 2nd floor
"Oh..My God!..the horror!"

Trapped in the attic
1/2 a case of drinking water
alligator swims by
then a floating dead

Panicked Teared faces
Frigid wet clothes under blankets
Mosquitos swarming
The heat is scolding

Minutes seem like hours
We hear a shout of safety
A chain of rain coats at the attic ladder
One by one ...we go... we are freed

We each sit quietly in a boat
Rain pouring down upon us
Coughing with tears
Under canvas with hot chocolate.

The wailing of suffering can be heard
The cries -n- screams from injuries
The panic screams of lost loved ones
Then horror screams of finding them.

An enormous community destroyed
Sunken homes and shops
Lives lost
Possessions and one's world...gone.

A "hope" ...is a seed ...plant it ... it will grow.
A time to come together
A time to help.
A time to heal.

PENNED August 2017
Our hearts and prayers go out to the "Harvey" Hurricane Flood victims in Texas
By JC Smiley / Marcus Wellbee & Susan Mack - Cotton Waters Estate 2017
