The poetic city: “Hurricane Prep”

Hurricane Prep 
Getting ready…
Trimming branches,
making cuts sharp and clean.
But Nature doesn’t clip.
She prefers to tear and rip 
with no mercy and
and no second thoughts
Fairness and forgiveness
are foreign to her lexicon,
Except by way of  Death 
where all are equal, all is reconciled,
And the gift of impermanence
shines with Eternal Grace
