Haiku for a Tropical Storm

playing in the rain

of a fierce tropical storm

at last, i feel life

Tropical Storm
Tonight in Jacksonville we are being hit by Tropical Storm Beryl.  The Jacksonville Jazz Festival was canceled as well as all events for Memorial Day. The Matthews Bridge closed around 8:00pm and JEA reports nearly 21,000 people are without power. At 11:20pm it was announced that all outbound flights from JIA have been cancelled.

Despite all the destruction these storms can cause, I have always found them exhilarating and cleansing.
