Tropical Storm Barry.jpgGulf Coast Saturday Morning

Hurricane Barry
ferries destruction.
Disruption of life,
rife with wind and rain.
Strain on Saturday,
stay or flee the storm.
Warm, muggy zephyr,
suffers light damage.
Images of flood,
mud and mess hits news.

Having lived through Ike and Harvey, the photos and the form help to crystallize the poem, if I am using that in the proper sense. A tension is added (heightened?) that I think might NOT be there except for the strictness.

Thanks Marti, The limited syllable count per line was a challenge.

Invitation

Give this form a try,
Thai verse in July.
Why not join the quest,
test your writing skill?
Will you meet with me,
be brave, write a Raay.
