Tis The Season

Something wicked this way comes

Dorian is her name

Wreaking havoc in her path

Up the coastal plain

Witchy storm, whirling dervish

Churning up the seas,

Devastating, decimating,

Despite the people’s pleas

Heed the warnings, board your windows

This storm is a monster, true

Evacuate before its too late,

I’d get out if I were you!

Tis the season, after all,

Storms come every year

It’s no one’s fault,

Just Mother Nature

Shedding her wicked tears.


That’s my contribution today, saying continued prayers for all those people in the Bahamas as well as all my friends and fellow bloggers along the eastern coast. Pray also if you will for all the rescue and restoration folks who will have more work on their hands than they can handle.

Crimson’s Creative Challenge #42

Crimson’s Creative Challenge #42

Tobacco Road was lonely and long, winding it’s way through the North Carolina country side, with nothing much to see but fields and fields of green. I was along for the ride that hot day in July, and my Uncle Jack kept looking over at me asking, “Are you bored yet?” “No sir,” I replied, “But I could use a cigarette.” We laughed at the old joke as he made his way toward the facility I was to tour later in Stantonsburg, NC. I was doing my college thesis on the global epidemic of tobacco use by teenagers in the US. and wanted to tour this facility so I could present with all the facts. Uncle Jack looked over at me as we pulled in and said, “I’m proud of you kiddo. You will make a difference in this world someday.” “That’s my aim, sir.” I answered.
