Poetry Tips: Weathering The Storms

Well it is hurricane season here in Florida and while I’d love to say I’m all prepared I generally do the minimum required every year to weather out the storms that bear down on us.
Not to mention we’ve all seen the various floods, earthquakes, and tornadoes accompanied with their destruction, on various news channels.

This week I want you write poetry with the theme above: Weathering the Storms. Emotional, literal, or both, there is plenty to inspire in every day life to draw from so I wish you good luck and good poetry.

Thanks for dropping in, please stop by again next week…
