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


(A Cleave Poem)

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.


(Bref Double Poem)
