Rumbling Relief

_____________________________________

The storms come finally on this hot humid day

Accompanied by thunder and lightning relief in the form of a torrential downpour

Electric disappears with a welcome gust of wind energy renewed with each drop hitting the ground

March 3

It’s good for a bit of perspective

_____________________________________

Power’s back on, what a relief

It’s an inconvenience at best

Two days without causes such grief

Really the problem is minor

*

Into day three I was stressed

Thankfully the outage was brief

And for that I feel quite blessed

I should stop being a whiner

*

I shake my head in disbelief

At the large numbers of oppressed

Who’s daily life is this great grief

Only rare systems are finer

*

Disparate access should be addressed

Everyone should feel this relief.
